The Beauty of Thy Peace

"Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of Thy peace."

- John Greenleaf Whittier

A prayer for the New Year! O that we might enjoy "ordered lives"!

"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord." - Psalm 37:23
