Nada te turbe

I think I posted this prayer here before.  I read it again from the reflection from the Word Among Us and take it with me today.

original Spanish text by St Teresa of Avila (1515-1582) 

Nada te turbe, 
nada te espante, 
todo se pasa; 
Dios no se muda. 
La paciencia 
todo lo alcanza; 
Quien a Dios tiene, 
nada le falta; 
Solo Dios basta. 

Let nothing trouble you. 
Let nothing frighten you. 
All is fleeting. 
God alone is unchanging. 
Patience obtains everything. 
The one who possesses God lacks nothing. 
God alone suffices.
