August H. Winding (1835–1899)


The Lord is in His ho­ly place,
Let all the earth be still;
Be still and know that He is God,
And wait to do His will.
We need a sac­red watch­ful­ness,
An ear­nest deep de­sire for grace,
Our lives with true con­tent to fill.

So hear and heed His faith­ful Word,
And trust His pro­mise long,
For they who seek Him life shall find,
And shall in Him be strong;
We need a per­fect faith in Him,
With un­der­stand­ing ne­ver dim,
To fill our dai­ly lives with song.
