When Silence comes
unfolds the thoughts that wait within my soul
I speak
I speak within to You alone, and learn

When Silence comes
gives peace to wearied mind and frazzled self
I rest
I rest within and trust Your present love

When Silence comes
reveals the hidden sorrows of the past
I wait
I wait for You to heal and teach me truth

When Silence comes
allows my heart to hear Your quiet voice
I listen
I listen…

when Silence comes
