Blessed Quietness

PB165101
Joys are flowing like a river,
Since the Comforter has come;
He abides with us forever,
Makes the trusting heart His home.
 
Blessed quietness, holy quietness,
Blest assurance in my soul!
On the stormy sea, He speaks peace to me,
And the billows cease to roll.
 
What a wonderful salvation,
Where we always see His face!
What a peaceful habitation!
What a quiet resting-place!
 
Blessed quietness, holy quietness,
Blest assurance in my soul!
On the stormy sea, He speaks peace to me,
And the billows cease to roll.
 
 
You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you!  Isaiah 26:3

  4. I've never heard this before. I smile to myself, just now the house is quiet and I thought to myself of the scripture to strive to live a quiet life. Just opposite of what we are told so often. Yes, blessed quietness. Have a blessed Thanksgiving dear friend.
