Peace, Be Still!

Sweet Jesus! by this Sacrament of Love
All gross affections from my heart remove;
Let but Thy loving kindness linger there,
Preserved by grace and perfected by prayer;
And let me to my neighbor strive to be
As mild and gentle as Thou art with me.
Take Thou the guidance of my whole career,
That to displease Thee be my only fear:
Give me that peace the world can never give,
And in Thy loving Presence let me live.
Ah! show me always, Lord, Thy Holy Will,
And to each troubled thought, say: “Peace, be still.”
