In This Quiet Place Again
I am in this quiet place.
I can hear laughter as they race,
To join me by these waters,
To tell stories of our journeys.
Shortly I feel their touch,
As our hands and faces embrace.
We are happy tonight,
Here in the quiet moonlight.
It is my friends whom I love so dear.
We are dancing and singing with endless cheer.
Then comes a gentle man,
To share in our evenings plans.
We sit around the edge,
Of the sweet river bed,
And listen with our hearts,
To our Christ, whose words He imparts.
As He tells the water calms,
And the wind suddenly stills.
The sounds of nature all around,
Become quiet, so that He is the only sound.
It penetrates my soul,
As I feel His words unfold,
And I think to myself,
It’s worth it, I’m glad I didn’t quit.
I could go on like this forever,
And I will, and it will only get better.
For my peace and rest I enjoy,
I am full of eternal life and joy.
I am here in this quiet place again,
As I see that I’m on earth,
But I know where I will go,
As I feel my endless worth.
I can come here at any time,
And in time that’s where I’ll be,
To share my forever
And eternity, with deity.
