Saturday Synaxis

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 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 me, my God, and keep me calm; let Thine outstretch├Ęd wing
Be like the shade of Elim's palm beside her desert-spring.

- Horatius Bonar
