Loving God, 

teach me to be silent,
so that I can stay close to you
and listen as you speak
within my heart and through 
what I see, hear and what men 
Speak.
 

In silence, I listen and find you in me.

 

In every living thing, the life cycle 
And life's ups and downs your 
voice can be heard and your 
presence felt.

 

In silence, I listen and find you in everything.

 

 

I thank you for your gift of silence,
as a cord linking me to your heart
and as a key that unlocks your
treasured words of truth into mine.
 

 

In silence, I listen and find you in me.
