In the whisper of the silence,
I can hear my Jesus say,
“If I lead you from all the rest,
Yet can you walk in my way?”
“Not looking at what others do,
But focus on my Promise?
Can you trudge when they soar skyward,
And fix your eyes on My face?
“T’will be safer with me at night
Than it is for them at day.
Follow me, with no backward look,
And I’ll be there all the way.”
I look on His face; the world fades,
And, through fear, I know my choice.
I will stride the deserts with Him;
My heart will follow His voice.
I go; I live simply with Christ.
Each day, scores fly over me,
But I grip His promise closer,
And press on through the valley.
And then one quiet night, I pause
And my heart is stillest still.
I hear again His whispered voice,
With love speaking His kind will.
He asks, “Was it worth the aching?
Was the ground better than sky?”
Without wavering I say yes
And He smiles. “Then now, you fly.”
