Be still my heart, take refuge,
In He who is my king.
He prepares my way before me,
And hears me when I sing.
In Psalms and in thanksgiving,
His ear He turns to me.
Be still my heart, take refuge,
Beneath His loving wing.

Fear not my heart, find courage,
Behind His Holy walls.
Stand firm upon the promise of
A King who cannot fall.
In a strong and mighty tower,
Well-guarded you will be.
Fear not my heart, take courage;
Proclaim His victory.

Rise up my heart, triumphant,
Is He who holds your key.
Your husbandman-provider,
The vine from which you feed.
Your warrior, your Lion,
Protector, sure and strong,
Rise up my heart, triumphant,
In Him do you belong.

Find peace my heart, find comfort,
In His Son; His Holy word.
His promises are yours to keep,
Unfailingly assured.
His grace; it is sufficient.
His love; it is complete.
Find peace, my heart, find comfort,
In Him, eternally.

This is near perfection. I have a hard time hearing rhythm and finding the beat but you did a fantastic job with this.

The only thing I might even question a little is the title. Of course we who know Jesus know the ending but I wonder if because you repeated the phrase My Heart if that might have been a title for a reader who hasn't mastered the reality of eternity yet. But I could be totally wrong too. I'll admit titles aren't my strongest area.

I could see you standing at the front of the church and could feel the vibrations as your voice echoed in the sanctuary. I'm sure if I were musical it would have come off as a song in my mind. You did a splendid job with this one.
