    We Are Reverent

    Quietly

    1. Quiet as deep waters run,

    Still as meadows in the sun;

    As we do what is right,

    We are rev’rent in thy sight.

    2. Quiet as the shadows are,

    Still as distant, watching star;

    As we learn, sing, and pray,

    We are rev’rent here today.
