Before The Blessed Sacrament

Sisters in the silence

Silent sacred space

Tabernacle lectern

Sedilia altar place

Switch off all distraction

Sit or kneeling there

Come home unto your silent self

Not emptiness but prayer


Let images ideas

And simple thoughts come in

Sit in his presence

Say goodbye to din

Here the Lord is waiting

Every day for you

Let him speak his word to you

All his words are true


Face the quiet every day

Let it be your friend

It will take all care away

All fearing of the end

Let the power of silence

Bring your soul to birth

Sit before the Lord of life

Come to know your worth
