Psalm 131

A song to sing as we climb.

David wrote this song.

1 Lord, I am not proud.

I do not think that I am great.

I do not try to do great things.

I do not try to understand things that are too hard for me.

2 Instead, I am quiet

and there is peace in my mind.

I am like a young child who sits on his mother's knee.

Yes, I have peace in my mind.

3 Israel's people, trust the Lord to help you,

now and for ever.
