Slow me down, Lord,
Ease my pounding heart,
quieten my racing mind,
steady my hurried steps.
Amidst the confusion of my days
give me the calmness of the everlasting hills.
Help me to know the restoring power of sleep.
Teach me the art of taking time-off,
of slowing down to look at a flower,
to chat with a friend,
to read a few lines from a good book.
Remind me each day that there is more to life
than increasing its speed.
Let me look into the branches of a towering oak,
and know that it grew tall and strong
because it grew slowly and well.
Slow me down, Lord.
Teach me to be gentle and humble of heart,
and thus I will find rest for my soul.
