GOD IS THE FRIEND OF SILENCE Our God is the friend of silence Our God is the friend of silence All our words are useless Unless they come from Him We will cease from striving And hear his voice within Our God is the friend of silence Our God is the friend of silence
2.
RESTORE US AGAIN We longed for Egypt in the wilderness A kingdom made of dust Built an idol out of happiness A paradise of rust We lost all the meaning Drowned out the feeling Our hearts barely beating Restore us again God of our salvation Revive us again in your unfailing love Restore us again God of our salvation Revive us again in your unfailing love We have trusted in the meaningless And chased a life of ease Now we wander in the shadow lands Where comfort is our king We lost all the meaning Drowned out the feeling Our hearts barely beating Restore us again God of our salvation Revive us again in your unfailing love Restore us again God of our salvation Revive us again in your unfailing love Holy spirit bring us life once again Holy spirit lead our hearts back to you
3.
I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU ALONE When your fear comes marching like an army And you hear all the pounding of the drums When your cries for justice come up empty When you ask in weakness “Lord how long?” When they sing with their creeds and confessions With blinded eyes and hearts of stone When they pay no heed to your oppression I will never leave you there alone I will never leave you alone I will never leave you alone When they hide behind morals of their own choosing And drown out your pain with their pious games When they view all your trouble like a nuisance I’m beside you in your suffering I will never leave you alone I will never leave you alone
4.
FOR GOD ALONE (PSALM 62) For God alone - my soul in silence waits For God alone - my soul in silence waits He alone is my rock and my salvation I will not be shaken My hope is in Him All my hope is in Him How long, how long will ever men drag me down? How long, how long will ever men drag me down? He alone is my rock and my salvation I will not be shaken My hope is in Him All my hope is in Him
5.
EAST/WEST (PSALM 103) Bless the Lord O my soul All that is within me bless His name He's forgives all our sin He is slow to anger, full of grace As high as the heavens are up above So is the greatness of his love As far as the east is from the west He removes our sin from us As far as the east is from the west As far as the east is from the west For the lord knows our frame Short our days from dust to dust we fade But His love will remain Merciful to those who fear his name The steadfast love of the Lord Is from everlasting to everlasting
