"I am weary with my crying;
my throat is parched.
My eyes grow dim
with waiting for my God."

i always liked "be still, and know that i am god." i guess people misread it in a god's-hollering-at-me kinda way, but to me it reads gently. like the line from Ash Wednesday: "teach us to care and not to care / teach us to sit still." maybe i'm just smitten with the word still.
