Calm the waves of this heart, O God; calm its tempests.
Calm yourself, O my soul, so that God is able to rest in you, so that God’s peace may cover you.
Yes, You can give us peace, O God, peace that the whole world can never take away.
Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) was a prolific Danish Christian writer who contributed original concepts to theology, philosophy, literature, and psychology. He was especially critical of the state-church and its politics and formalities which, he said, distorted true Christianity.
