A Silence that Pours Love
Dwelling, love swelling from silence that pours
sweetened so mellow, in the cavern’s surround.
Here in the mound that so softly receives.
Here in the curve of my heart in God found.
Misted, lifted, oh blessed by the dear gift,
carried by kindness, unspoken prayers heard.
Here is the home that turns all towards you.
Here is the beat of my heart in God’s word.
Stayed, assured; with rest in the calm.
Lullabies sing to my soul with Your psalms.
Comfort is dwelling, love swelling – it pours,
sweetened by the caverns’ mound silent surround
here in the curve of my heart, God found.

But the LORD is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him.
Be still and know that I am God.
In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.
