As Gentle as Silence

Oh, the love of my Lord is the essence of all that I love here on earth.
All the beauty I see God has given to me, and the giving is gentle as silence.

Every day, every hour, every moment have been blessed by the strength of God's love.
At the turn of each tide God is there at my side, with a touch that is gentle as silence.

There've been times when I've turned from your presence, and I've walked other paths, other ways.
But I've called on your name in the dark of my shame, and your mercy was gentle as silence.
