In the Silence

    “In the Silence,” New Era, Dec. 2013, 16–17

    In the Silence

    music, In the Silence

    1. In the silence of the ev’ning

    Underneath a winter sky,

    When the stars stream forth in splendor,

    Thy coming, Lord, is nigh.

    Oh, will I see Thee in the beauty?

    Will I hear the angels sing?

    Are my own gifts pure and ready

    For an offering to bring?

    2. In the silence, in the shadows,

    Lo, the light of truth burns bright.

    In Thy peace and in Thy power

    There will nevermore be night!

    Oh, let Thy Saints rejoice together,

    Let our hearts rise to Thy throne,

    Let Thy love be as a beacon

    That will guide us safely home.

    3. In the sunrise, sweet with birdsong,

    In the clarity of morn,

    Let me seek Thee, let me find Thee,

    Let Thy love in me be born!

    Oh, Savior, Lord, come to redeem us,

    Let me walk Thy gentle way,

    Let Thy mercy, all-sufficient,

    Light my striving mortal day.
