Shh! This is a quiet life;
learning to be content,
to carry my own burdens,
to mind after my own business,
to honor Christ with true obedience
in humility, in peace, in self-awareness
and with a focus upon what is good.
Don’t chuck your muck in my dustbin;
My dustbin’s full.
Look! Where is Christ at work?
Listen! What do you hear and heed?
Make it your ambition – a quiet life
Of peace and truth and integrity.
