Merton’s Keep Me in This Silence

Dear Father, I beg you
To let you keep me
In this sweet silence
A learning to be

Your word of peace
Your word of mercy
Your gentleness
To the world through me

That Your word of peace
May make itself heard
Where not possible
A long time not occurred

For the light itself
Contentment and Spirit
That these be enough
In You, let us share it

  1. Dear Father, I beg you
    To let you keep me
    In this sweet silence
    A learning to be

    Your word of peace
    Your word of mercy
    Your gentleness
    To the world through me

    We can all be “learning to be / Your word of peace…of mercy…gentleness to the world”.

    What challenging words for us to read and share.
