Beneath a Silent Night

In the cool of the evening,

The chill of the night,

The stars, they are brilliant

And Heaven’s Hope is my light.

 

The stillness is settling

The quiet so deep

The whisper of God,

“Sleep, my child, sleep.”

 

“No worry can harm you,

No scheme decimate,

No sorrow defeat you

When in Me, you do wait.”

 

“The joys of this earth

Are mere shadows before;

The blessings, a taste

Of what I have in store.”

 

He brings rest for the weary

And sight for the blind,

Hope for the hurting

Calm for the mind.

 

He transforms our delights

To reveal more of Him;

Leading us away

From self-satsified sin.

 

To once again savor

The wonder elusive –

The babe in the manger

God Himself infuses

 

The joy and delight

Of that first silent night

When the angels announced

“Peace with God now in sight.”

 

As He settles my soul

And wraps me around

My Savior reminds me,

I’m not lost, I am found!

 

“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.”  Romans 5:1-2
