I love to step inside a church,

To rest, and think, and pray;

The quiet, calm, and holy place

Can drive all cares away.

I feel that from these simple walls

There breathes a moving sound

Of sacred music, murmured prayers,

Caught in the endless round.

Of all that makes our human life;

Birth, and the union blessed

Of couples at the altar wed,

And loved ones laid to rest.

Into my soul this harmony

Has poured and now is still,

The Lord’s own benediction falls

Upon me as I kneel.

Once more, with lifted head, I go

Out in this jarring mart,

The spring of gladness in my step,

God’s peace about my heart. David Foley
