I Weave a Silence on to My Lips

I weave a silence on to my lips;
I weave a silence into my mind;
I weave a silence within my heart;
I close my ears to distractions;
I close my eyes to attractions;
I close my heart to temptations.

Calm me as You stilled the storm;
Still me, keep me from harm;
Let all the tumult within me cease;
Enfold me, Beloved, in your peace.

Listen to Our Hearts

O God, forgive the poverty and pettiness of our prayers. Listen not to our words, but to the yearnings of our hearts. Hear beneath our petitions the crying of our need.  --- Peter Marshall

From "Listen to Our Hearts" by Geoff Moore
So listen to our hearts, and hear our spirits sing
A song of praise that flows
From those you have redeemed.
We will use the words we know
To tell you what an awesome God You are.
Words are not enough to tell You of our love
So listen to our hearts.
