Silence is not only “Golden”, it is much needed!
Guard yourself from him who takes,
Watch yourself, he comes and breaks,
Quiet moments he destroys.
Sound and racket he employs.
Blasts your days with deaf’ning noise.
Where he treads, the quiet shakes.
Priceless gifts of peace and rest,
Costly stillness which is blessed,
He thieves these treasures, please beware.
Chase God’s quiet and HIS care!
The Silence Thief will make snare –
For stealing silence, he knows best.
“The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”
