Grant me Your patience, Lord,
When things don't go the way they should.
Help me in the times of stress
To act the way my Saviour would.

O keep my spirit sweet,
If others show their tortured soul,
Give me Your quiet calm.
When waves of turmoil round me roll.

Fresh-fill me with Your love,
Lest anger in my heart be stirred,
O may Your gentle voice
Commanding "Peace, be still," be heard.

Lord, help me to believe,
And with tranquility to rest
In this assurance sweet,
Your way and time are always best.
