In the still of the night..




In the still of the night I find peace with Thee.
No tarrying, no boisterious din of the day,
just You and I..
I look across to You and Your smile lifts my burden,
You know all I've been through today.
It is written in compassion on Your brow.
I feel I have no right to waste Your time with my silly doubts which I dismiss as nonsense,
But Your eyes plead with me, You implore..
You have the answers I seek.
I fear You will not understand,
and yet You search me with tears in Your eyes.

Your tears give me peace...
You feel what I feel,
Your will is to enlighten me,
You will that I should speak with You without fear,
that I should trust in Your power..
I recount all the prayers I have prayed,
and You finish all the lines.
You recite a prayer lost to me,
carved deep in my memories and yet it is carved in Your heart.
You heard my prayers..
The tears in Your eyes show me Your love and understanding.

I ask You if I will ever understand Your ways?
You tell me that the answer is within me.
I hold on to my faith and watch the night go by with You in tow.
In the still of the night when the tears You shed for me fall onto an open heart.
When the peace cannot be broken by man or storm.
In the still of the night when I am one with You Lord.

Melody


Today is the dawn of a new day, I feel Him so close I could touch the hem of His garment. I hear His voice gently say, "I died that you may live."
 His resounding voice beating in tune with the joy I feel in my heart.
 The bass and the acoustic swaying in unison with that joy giving rise to a beautiful melody, a melody that tells of His love.
Indeed this is a new day, this melody lifts me off my feet and sets me on higher ground.
I may not know where the road leads from here on in, but I worry not, for His tender voice reminds me that tomorrow is not mine, and He will take care of me always, yes this beat in my heart makes a melody of peace, love and hope...
The melody I never imagined I could hear I now can feel all the way from heaven.
 A sound that sets me free from slavery and lifts me to greater heights.
 The melody of being one with my Saviour, the beautiful sound of everlasting peace, love and joy.
 A melody I want to hear with my entire mind, body and soul for as long as I shall walk this earth.
The sweet melody of God's love...
The melody that sets me apart...
 Oh how sweet the sound...
