The Heart Worships (1910)

The Heart Worships

Silence in Heav'n,
Silence on Earth
Silence within!
Thy hush, O Lord,
O'er all the world covers the din.
I do not fear to speak of thee in mortal kind
And yet to all thy namelessness I am not blind.
Only I need and kneel again
Thy touch to win;
Silence in Heav'n
Silence on Earth
Silence within!
