I Weave a Silence


I weave a silence onto 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 eyes to temptations.


Calm me, O Lord, as you stilled the storm.

Still me, O Lord, keep me from harm.

Let all tumult within me cease.

Enfold me, Lord, in your peace.
