"LYRICS God of Silence The God of silence beckons me To journey to my heart Where He awaits O Lord, I hear You calling tenderly To You I come to gaze At the beauty of Your face I cannot see To rest in Your embrace I cannot feel To dwell in Your love hurting but sweet To be with You, to glimpse eternity God of night, fount of all my delight. Show Your light . . . that my heart, like Yours, burn bright. Be still the torment of the night Shall not encumber you, if you believe My child this darkness isn’t emptiness For here I mold your heart Unto My image painfully you long to see The self you yearn to be, but fear to know The world from which you flee in Me find home All these I give you, if you remain in Me COUNTERPOINT: I am ever here My child, you need not fear The dark will set you free And bring your heart to Me CODA: The God of silence beckons me To journey to my heart Where He awaits me. words and music by Fr.
