Silentium

Silence

More eloquent than words

The inner voice

The voice of God is heard

 

Years I spent in silence

At morning and at eve

With others in the chapel

Brothers who believe

 

Jesus on the hillside

Communed alone with God

The warmth of that communion

Helped him where he trod

 

Silence is for everyone

It soothes the aching heart

Restores our joy in living

Together and apart

 

May these days of stillness

Sense and succour bring

And may our lives be blessed once more

With Charles our late come king
