Sometimes I need to be quiet
so that I can hear my heart speak.
Activities, noise, busy-ness and such
Make it hard to feel and see.
It’s when I take time to listen
And ponder each intimate word,
That the gentle voice of solitude
Whispers sweetly and is heard.
Oh to know her words of wisdom;
To be able to understand;
To become deeply acquainted
With god and His loving plan.
For such treasures I draw aside
With joy and anticipation
I give to God my own agenda,
I join Him with elation.
Ah, to dwell with such companions
Is greater than riches and fame!
To enter into love, hope and peace;
To worship His Holy name.
So I enter into silence,
To tryst with the friend of my soul;
To hear the melodies of Heaven
And know that, in Him, I’m whole.
