Treasure Island

Jerry Hoffman


In Silence


In silence the star,
Proclaimed Jesus' birth.
In silence He walked,
Thirty years on this earth.

In silence He ministered.
Marks in the sand,
In silence dispersing,
The unruly band.

In silence He entered,
Jerusalem's gate.
In silence He stood,
Accepting love's fate.

In silence abused.
Disrobed as a slave.
In silence He rose,
Over sin and the grave.

In silence we often,
Must stand as He stood,
Receiving the evil,
Returning the good.

In silence His children,
Oft' kneel at His throne.
The cry of their hearts,
Heard by His ears alone.

Silent faith holds us fast,
Shining truth in the night.
But that silence will end,
When our faith becomes sight!

    Beautiful. Though we are clearly called to be a vocal witness for others (which you have obviously done) , there are indeed moments where silence is called for. Well done. You may like my 'Sunrise On The Mount' - my best work. Cheers. (Report) Reply
