Advent's Sacred Silences

In the quiet of a room they sigh In candle's glow they live under An icon's shadow and an unheard cry And the Truth-bearing words that thunder - Those Sacred Silences who tenderly await the soul. They speak of His coming, not delayed, but near for etched in unknown depths, they say, the same Image of the One whose patient tear slays the heart and gives all away - In those Sacred Silences who tenderly await the soul. Let saving truth's grammar unbound Those lips thirsting for syllables of love To drink deep the wisdom in whose font resound Those words below of the Word above: As enveloped in great silences The soul awaits His Coming.
