The beauty of a quiet sound
Falling on my ear.
The calm and peaceful moment
My soul delights to hear.
The soft breeze of the day,
The hushed life of creation,
Bring to me the sweetest joy
Of a tender elation.
Lingering in Your afternoon,
I’m grateful for a day of rest.
What a unique gift
To view the moon silently crest.
Evening arrives, bringing the night sky.
It’s time to lay me down and sleep.
For I know the sound love of God
Will watch over His sheep.
