Slow me down, O Lord!
Slow down the furious race
The frenzied frazzled pace
The chaos of my days
The machinations of 21st century life
The monster of this life
The loss of my life.
Slow me down, O My God!
Will that I take you walking
A little pathway with foliage above
Will that we hear the singing
The flutters from your treasure trove
When I touch your earth so bare
I learn to softly, softly be
And feel the tenderness in your air
And know that in the slow, I am me.
