H/T to my friend EASTER who wrote the poem:
A Time to Listen
Quiet my heart that I may listen
To your sweet voice calling my name
Let me hear the whisper of your words
Soft they may be yet melodious
Let me hear the laughter of that voice
As it reaches my ears
And tickles their lobes
And assures me I am yours
That sweet voice permeates my being
And brings me the most indescribable joy
Let me truly hear your words
Make my hands and feet move
To the rhythm of your commands
O shall my joy be complete!
My sheep know my voice. They listen and they follow me.
They will never be lost. I give them eternal life.
God alone is our source of strength and joy.
To make him that
it is important
to take the time to be quiet and
to listen to his voice.
