Calm me, my God, and keep me calm

Calm me, my God, and keep me calm
while these hot breezes blow;
be like the night dew's cooling balm
upon earth's fevered brow.

Calm me, my God, and keep me calm,
soft resting on thy breast;
soothe me with holy hymn and psalm
and bid my spirit rest.

Yes, keep me calm, though loud and rude
the sounds my ear that greet,
calm in the closet's solitude,
calm in the bustling street;

Calm in the hour of buoyant health,
calm in my hour of pain;
calm in my poverty or wealth,
calm in my loss or gain;

Calm in the suffering of wrong
like him who bore my shame;
calm 'mid the threatening, taunting throng
who hate thy holy name;

Calm as the ray of sun or star
which storms assail in vain,
moving unruffled through earth's war
the eternal calm to gain.
