Teach Me to Dwell Within Thy Calm

Before the winds that blow do cease, teach me to dwell within Thy calm;

Before the pain has passed in peace, give me, my God, to sing a psalm.

Let me not lose the chance to prove the fulness of enabling love.

O Love of God, do this for me: Maintain a constant victory.
