Silent in the Twilight ~
How can I stay silent, while waiting here below,
As the moonlight softly whispers, it's enticing good night
For if I didn't whisper back, the sea and sky will shout,
Aloud in all their glory, they are always crying out.
Can I stay quiet in the twilight, when the rocky hills
With mysterious sounds of wonder, aged secrets that they
While thunder shakes the heavens, as You ride upon the
Sending lightening bolt display, from the power that You
What do I know, of constellations making every season
The laws of the universe, and Your dominion over all the
Wisdom to count the clouds, to tip water jars from high
When the dust becomes too hard, You pour forth of Your
The making of doors to close the ocean in, and shaping
earth like clay,
The eagle soars at Your command, the sky as his domain.
You watch the doe give birth to fawn, the donkey running
And clothe the horse with flowing mane, each design a
Where was I, when you laid the earth's foundations down,
As You marked off each dimension, beyond all I can
The morning stars You formed to celebrate as one.
And when the angels shouted in wondrous joy, all
the heavens rang.
How can I stay silent, when I know above all this, You
love me still,
From the moment of my birth, all my life You fill.
How can I not live my life, in deep awe of Your voice
For I hear it deep within my soul, to listen my
How can my heart not smile, when Your fragrance flows
Wafting through the many shadows, Your heartbeat comes
How can I not praise you, with my lips, my life, my
When You are here, Oh Father, so near in the dark.
Yet, I will stay silent, hushed,
And bow myself to You,
Overcome by Your presence
and all You are to me
Your love I know is true.

Is there any God besides Me?
No, there is no other Rock.
I have made you, I will not forget you,
I have swept away your offenses like the morning mist.
Return to me, for I have redeemed you.
Sing for joy, O heavens, for the Lord has done this;
shout aloud O earth beneath.
Burst into song, you mountains,
you forests and all your trees,
for the Lord has redeemed His people.
Your Redeemer who formed you in the womb.
I am the Lord, who has made all things, Who alone
stretched out the heavens,
Who spread out the earth by Himself.
