I Have Calmed and Quieted My Soul
A Song of #[See Ps. 120, title]Ascents. Of David.
1O Lord, my heart is not #[Ps. 138:6; Isa. 57:15] lifted up;
my eyes are not #See Ps. 101:5 raised too high;
I do not #[Jer. 45:5; Rom. 12:16] occupy myself with things
too great and #See Job 42:3too marvelous for me.
2But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
like a weaned #[Matt. 18:3; 1 Cor. 14:20]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.
