A lesson in quietness


A lesson in quietness

It is in our stillness that we learn the most
We find in there no cause to boast,
no pride, no scorn, no selfish air,
but merely truthfulness so bare.

It is in our stillness that we learn to weep
for things that hurt us in our deep,
for things of pain and shame and lack,
we face our deepest, darkest black.

It is in our stillness that we learn to see
what good is there in you and me,
what good to reap, to keep, to share,
to show to others everywhere.

It is in our stillness that we learn to pray
the things that God wants us to say,
the things of duty, want and trust,
a treasure that will never rust.
