Speak to us of the silence
That carries the unspoken words,
The place that is between the waves
of emptiness beyond time and space.
Talk to us with the soul
That lives in the voice that God knows,
The energy that we can’t help but seek,
That laughter that understands eternity.
Talk with pictures, of those living thoughts
That describe the feelings life has brought,
To you, to me, to the ones we need
That can’t quite hear the answers we reveal.
Dare to talk of love with words unspoken
That describe it so clearly that we recognize
That spirit is in us and seeks to grow
Into this way to worship that spark of the unknown.
Try to capture the sound of God,
In the silence beyond the mind.
Try to listen and to learn
And to leave that trying behind.
Jump into the waters of the stream
That carry us to the distant shore,
And say a prayer that it takes you where you need,
To complete this journey’s through eternity.
Speak to us so we can set a compass
To that sound that is the anthem of our life,
Sing of wishes, sing of dreams,
and all the pain that living brings.
Speak with the space between the silence,
And all those unspoken words take flight
And are written on the wall that celebrates your life,
And that energy that carried you to God’s one light
