Be Still

We need to be still for a little while
How else can we hear God?
As we rush through each endless mile
Upon the road we trod

We need to pause and hear Him speak
Through buds unfurled in splendor
To feel His kiss upon our cheek
In sunshine, soft and tender

We hear Him in the bird that sings
To herald the new day dawning
Across this broken void He flings
A pure and azure awning

And should the tempest rise to sweep
Away our temporal pleasure
We feel Him as the tears we weep
Remind us of our treasure

We need to be still for a little while
To touch His hand of wonder
He stirs the daisy-laden mile
And wields the arm of thunder

We need to be still so we may know
Upon this path we trod
No matter where the road may go
He is the one true God


Be still and know that I am God. Ps. 46:10
