In silence,

Will I find me,
Or will I, in truth, find you?

You’re always present

Here and now, Lord,

For you fill the world around me,
And within.

I needn’t seek you, yearn for you,
Or wait, Lord,

For in you I live and move,
And have my being.

I just turn to you, believe you,
And receive you, Lord,

For you fill the world around me,
And within.
