Deep in the silence of the forest
Was where I'd go to be
That I might hear in Nature's stillness
God's voice speak to me.
His voice, it echoed through the trees
When the wind caressed their limbs,
Like angels softly whispering
A thousand prayer hymns.
And through the brook, His voice, it laughed
A strong and joyful song
Which spoke of His enduring love
As it winded its way along.
He spoke through the clamor of the squirrels
And the owl's solemn cries, and evening played His symphonies
In the crickets' lullabies. These melodies, they stirred my soul
To depths no words could express. Alonein the forest my heart did find
its greatest happiness!
