|In the Stillness
|In the stillness of dark December
when all of nature is at rest,
I find time to pause and remember
how wonderfully God has blest.
|In the stillness I come to thee,
as the Magi did at your birth,
I fall on bended knee
and feel at peace with all the Earth.
|The slowing down at year's end
to reflect on what God has done,
how God cared enough to send
to Earth His most precious son.
|In the stillness of falling snow
a hush falls over all the Earth,
animals and birds seem to know
that we are celebrating Jesus' birth.
