Sometimes I must be a silent,
For that is the only way
To know better,
To think a little wiser,
To become a little more perfect,
To claim God a little sooner.
I pray to God and meditate on God.
I pray to God to see His Face of Height.
I meditate on God to feel His Heart of Delight.
Your mind has a flood of questions.
There is but one teacher
Who can answer them.
Who is that teacher?
Your silence-loving heart.
