Keep me settled.
Here I stand in The Lord, beloved.
My grip opens and the sum of my fear
is carried off
on thanksgiving’s wings.
Thanksgiving for boundless grace,
for sanctification amidst unrighteousness,
for favor, despite sin dwelling inside.
Now is a time to know
that peace will guard
my heart and thoughts
in Christ Jesus.
It is a time to rest in peace
while yet alive.
