INTO THE QUIET
INTO THE QUIET

I needed the quiet, He drew me aside,

Into nature, where I could confide.

Away from the hustle, away from the stress,

Into nature, where I could rest.

_____

I needed the quiet, He told me to go,

Into His spirit, so I can grow.

And He whispered so gently, His gift of peace,

Into His spirit, His love will never cease.

_____

I needed the quiet, He led me there,

Into this place, where I felt His care.

He called me so sweetly, so I did abide,

He knew I needed the quiet, He knew to pull me aside.
