Face To Face

Busy world outside

In here quiet space

Candlelight tranquillity

Person face to face

Tabernacle presence

Person in the pew

Heart engages heart

I will speak with you


This is no long distance

Looking far away

No far out horizon

This is close – to pray

God is ever by your side

Turn in here and see

I am with you always

Nearer my God to thee


The Lord is in the quiet place

In chapel church and heart

The Lord was in our human flesh

And that was torn apart

In every cruel encounter

The Lord is nailed again

Let quiet hearts grow strong in him

And suffer this world’s pain
