And love life without guile
To partake of what’s pure
They journey with a guide

And avoid striking back
They seek not a judge and jury
But with God stay on track

We live in a much coarsening day
Meekness has been lost along the way
Little matters have now become quite large
Because we think we are the one in charge

Meekness is all
but vanished away
It is our call
The Lord shows the way

I stepped into the word
And looked every which way around.
I discovered the Lord.
He was everywhere to be found!

One who is selfless in service
And squares his shoulders for the task.
Who but follows his known purpose
And, through every trial, he does pass.

As a willing participant,
He enjoys his life and learning.
When called for, he is indignant,
To show God’s love, he is yearning.

He is able to take criticism
And knows when to be silent.
He is a model citizen
Because he is self-reliant.

His goal is but to please
And he endures ingratitude.
His soul is filled with peace
From a positive attitude.

He is observant most of all
And finds nature is his tutor.
As all things point to God
He is hopeful for the future.

BYU Address 1982

I also learned what meekness is not: pursuing worldly trends, vanity, insincerity, uncertainty, saving our “image”, defensive, ego tantrums, demanding, feeling entitled, indulgence, status, being first, worrying about being taken advantage of, sarcasm, pride, self-conscious, persecuting others, contending with adversaries, scorning others, look down on others, speaking down, coarseness, selfishness, machismo

Softspokenness, meekness,
And humility in crisis
These are what best reaches
The soul when life tries us
