lyrics

Chase the wind, search the world
Taste every pleasure on the earth
Come up dry, crying for something to satisfy

Dig your own grave and fall in
The day of death, better than
The day of birth when all trouble begins
But I have stilled and quieted my soul

I have stilled and quieted my soul
Like a child grown, I'm not crying anymore
Fed and full, lay my head upon your chest
Feel the rhythm of your heart still my soul

A handful of quiet better than
Two fistfulls of toil and chasing the wind
Lean back onto a steady foundation
Never caves, never blows away

My heart won't be proud, my eyes will stay low
Stay out of matters ungraspable
Too great and too wonderful for me
I have stilled and quieted my soul

I have stilled and quieted my soul
Like a child grown, I'm not crying anymore
Fed and full, lay my head upon your chest
Feel the rhythm of your heart still my soul

There's nothing left but to lay it down
Tip your head back, he will fill you up until you overflow
Enter his rest

You have stilled and quieted my soul
Like a mother her child holds
Your peace surpassing all understanding have I known
You have stilled and quieted my soul
