Blessed Quietness

P1142318
Joys are flowing like a river,
Since the Comforter has come;
He abides with us forever,
Makes the trusting heart His home.

Bringing life and health and gladness,
All around this heavenly Guest,
Banished unbelief and sadness,
Changed our weariness to rest.

What a wonderful salvation,
Where we always see His face!
What a perfect habitation,
What a quiet resting place!

Blessed quietness, holy quietness,
What assurance in my soul!
On the stormy sea, He speaks peace to me,
How the billows cease to roll!

(We are at the Oregon Coast for a few days to celebrate our fortieth wedding anniversary – the photo above is the view from our window.  We are enjoying ‘blessed quietness’ – for body and soul.)

Song: ‘Blessed Quietness’

  1. You know this is one of my favorite places on earth. I am missing it a lot. I see from other friends on FB that you got snow last night. Hope all is well with you.
