Slow me down. Let me watch this sunset
With no thought of rising moon to come.
Help me view the fading rays,
Reach the end lingering but without delay,
Hours and hours remain to watch stars at night.
Help me trust slow work of God,
Benefit in unfolding fast belief,
Healing wounds and grief—
Patient in suspense for something new
Gradually, in hours to come.
Let whatever miracle forms within
Arrive in its good time, no rush—
Within unknown find no anxiety,
Not needing to understand but trust
God’s strong hand is always leading.
