I Have Calmed and Quieted My Soul

O Lord, my heart is not lifted up;

my eyes are not raised too high;

I do not occupy myself with things

too great and marvelous for me.

But I have calmed and quieted my soul,

like a weaned child with its mother;

like a weaned child is my soul within me.

O Israel, hope in the Lord

from this time forth and forevermore.

A Psalm of David (Psalms 131, ESV)


A calm and quiet soul is one who hopes in the Lord.
