I Weave a Silence

I weave a silence onto my lips.

I weave a silence into my mind.

I weave a silence within my heart.

I close my ears to distractions.

I close my eyes to attractions.

I close my heart to temptations.

Calm me, O Lord, as you stilled the storm.

Still me, O Lord; keep me from harm.

Let all tumult within me cease.

Enfold me, Lord, in your peace.

A Gaelic Prayer
