Here In The Silence
My soul thirsts, O Lord
Where are you hiding?
Why can’t I find you?
I call your name
And silence reverberates
My tears flow like lava
Where are you? Lord?
Strength seems to fail
Even the wind is still
While the deep silence lingers
Yet, my hope lies in your promise…
Never to abandon me
So, I will wait in this silence
‘Til your voice I hear once more
Within this fragrant garden of solitude
At last, it is you! Only you will
Call to me, ‘Peace, be still;
‘For in the silence I’m with you, always…’
Now my soul rejoices in your presence
Overcome by unparallel beauty and peace
I recline at your feet, my Father…
7th Place in "Song inspired Poems, Old or New"
Note: Inspired by “Adagio in G Minor”
By The London Promenade Orchestra. Listen to it
And you’ll find it’s one of the most beautiful pieces
Of music, ever…if you’re like me.. you’ll cry. I couldn’t find
Their rendition on YouTube but this is almost as good
Maybe better in some ways…it’s lengthier.
Enjoy : )
