God of the wind
God of the waves
God of the storm
God of the storm that sometimes rages inside me.

God of the pink skies
God of the puffy clouds
God of the horizon
God of the seagulls.

Shelter me
Protect me
Calm the storm inside.

God of our comings
God of our goings
God of our endings
God of new beginnings.

Let me be still
And know you
Be still
And know
You are my God,
God of all.
