Metre: Tune: Noel Nouvelet

Gentle whispers hover; lead me into prayer;
Within sweet silence, I feel more aware.
Solace and calm surround my very soul;
Pay heed to the quiet; may I be made whole?
Fears and worries linger; where to find release
From the uncertain; harmony and peace
Will soothe my spirit—-bring tranquillity;
I embrace the stillness of serenity.
Now my heart is open, and my thoughts fly free;
Leave me to settle where I long to be.
This is my goal, the essence of my quest;
Deepest joy floods through me; doubt is laid to rest.
