Stillness of Soul

morning

O Blessed Jesus,
Give me stillness of soul in Thee,
Let Thy mighty calmness rule in me.
Rule me,O Thou King of gentleness,King of Peace.
Give me control,great power of self-control,
Control over my thoughts,words,actions.
from all irritability,
want of meekness,
want of gentleness
Dear Lord deliver me.
By Thine own deep patience,
give me patience,
stillness of soul in Thee.
Make me in this and in all,
More and more like Thee.
Amen.
(St. John of the Cross)
