We Need Silence

We need silence to be
With God alone
In our inner room
Let His light be shown

To listen to Him
To Him let us speak
Deep in our hearts
His Word to seek

In silence, alone
With God, to be formed
To be renewed
And be transformed

For silence gives us
An outlook anew
Of wisdom in life
One of Gods’ view

For in it we’re filled
With God’s energy
That makes us do
All things, joyfully

“We need silence to be alone with God, to speak to him, to listen to him, to ponder his words deep in our hearts. We need to be alone with God in silence to be renewed and transformed. Silence gives us a new outlook on life. In it we are filled with the energy of God himself that makes us do all things with joy.” Mother Teresa

Bed of Silence

In a bed of silence
We come to rest
With a blanket of light
Our soul to be blessed

Warm in the comfort
Safe and secure
Finding in faith
Your love so pure

Into Your dwelling
Of grace to know
We surrender unto
A sweet letting go

A gift of this being
Of unspoken prayer
In building our trust
We add a layer

Space of Silence

Where is the silence
For Spirit to speak?
A focus this day
These spaces to seek

In Church or in sunrise
Within light of grace
When in His Presence
It’s a sacred space

In page of the Scripture
Of space between Word
To savor in soul
Let wisdom be heard

Blessed be the soul
Of practice to start
Of the space of silence
Within their own heart

Settle in Silence

Settle in silence
Relinquish control
Muscles relaxing
Surrender the soul

Being of dwelling
Drawing of deep
Drift in the flow
Of Spirit to seep

Languished in love
Comforts embrace
Gifts of the Spirit
Infused with grace

Benefits blessed
Beyond what we know
In mind and body
Of soul to bestow

Palette of Silence

Let us be attentive
May the soul be aware
For the voice of silence
Always speaks here

Though the sky be cloudy
Or darkness appears
The light of silence
Always shines clear

When feeling lonely
Do not despair
The Word of silence
Of His love is shared

The language of Presence
In the soul to hear
For the palette of silence
Forms the foundation of prayer

A Pocket of Silence

In a pocket of silence
Of this moment of time
To be in Your Presence
With an offer of mine

A gifting of love
To contemplate
To ocean eternal
Of Your love so great

A broken sinner
With will to concede
Showered in blessings
Of all that I need

A drop of the grateful
So dependent to be
A blessing of grace
Here dwell in me

A Sitting of Silence

A sitting of silence
A purpose of prayer
Of settling soul
Of dwelling so dear

Surrounding of Spirit
Awareness of air
Breath of the breathing
Of holiness here

Lord gently loving
Divinity dwells
Gratitude growing
Sacredness swells

A blessing beyond
Gifted in going
The Spirit to share
With soul of the showing

Savoring Silence

Savoring silence
Of Presence to dwell
A space of the sacred
Deep is the well

Sip of the Spirit
Of filling we find
Drink of desire
Of quenching, divine

A drawing of deeper
Of Word here to flow
An intimate binding
Of love now to know

A floating of being
Within, permeate
The glory of God
And His love so great

I’ve Come to

I’ve come to view the rising sun
A beautiful display
Basking in the colors flow
Lifting me away

I’ve come to hear the silence dwell
And still my restless soul
A being of connection
Fills the empty hole

I’ve come to breathe the new dawns air
A drawing of the deep
Exhaling now, let emptiness
Of beyond to seep

I’ve come to pray in morning light
A simple way to see
A listening to Your voice
As Spirit prays through me

I’ve come to know within my soul
That You, my Lord are here
With blessing of abundant love
Here and everywhere

I Want

I want to hear silence
Its peace to impart
Spirit of stillness
Dwell in the heart

I want here a resting
A nesting of prayer
A binding with You
Nearer than near

I want to surrender
To offer my will
A needing so deep
Only You can fulfill

I want a desire
One of compassion
Sharing your love
One of Your passion
