respite for my soul

When my pace is hurried
and I’m feeling weak and worried
and I need a little respite for my soul
I find a place in time
to leave this troubled world behind
some time to sit with myself and be still.

I need a little respite
for my soul, soul, soul
take a little time to leave
my cares behind
find a little comfort
and some peace of mind
some time to sit with myself and be drill

I wait to be enlightened
and I find that I am frightened
and I need a little respite for my soul
I’ll find my life’s a blessing
if I learn this simple lesson
learn to sit with myself and be still

I found the gift of knowing
in a quiet place is growing
and I need a little respite for my soul
My faults I am forgiven
in the moment I am living
as I sit with myself to be still

(Lyrics to “Respite For My Soul” by Pat Humphries)
