“Be Still,” Friend, Apr. 2010, 35

Be Still

I say to my feet

When they walk down the street,

You can skip, hop, and run,

You can have lots of fun.

But at church

It is time to be still.

Yes,

I will.

My hands like to clap.

They can wave, they can snap.

They can eat with a spoon.

They can play a sweet tune.

But at church

I will make them be still.

Yes,

I will.

When I’m out playing ball,

I can yell, I can call.

I can make lots of noise,

With the girls and the boys.

But at church

I’ll keep my voice still.

Yes,

I will.
