The Heart’s Cure
By Ellen Sturgis Hooper (1812–1848)
 
  “HEART, heart, lie still!
Life is fleeting fast,
Strife will soon be past.”
  “I cannot lie still,
  Beat strong I will.”        5
 
  “Heart, heart, lie still!
Joy’s but joy, and pain ’s but pain,
Either, little loss or gain.”
  “I cannot lie still,
  Beat strong I will.”        10
 
  “Heart, heart, lie still!
Heaven is over all,
Rules this earthly ball.”
  “I cannot lie still,
  Beat strong I will.”        15
 
  “Heart, heart, lie still!
Heaven’s sweet grace alone
Can keep in peace its own.”
  “Let that me fill,
  And I am still.”        20
