Christmas 2016

As I sit here and reflect upon this upcoming holiday, I realize that I am often behind those around me when it comes to Christmas. I like to wait until it is nearly upon us to put up my tree, think about the season. This year as I thought about advent, someone said to me that she prepared before hand so that the season could be as it was meant to be, a time of reflection and silence. This year on Christmas Eve I will be singing about that silence.

“Silence” is a song that I wrote when I was working on my songs for my CD Awakening with my producer. I was feeling a bit intimidated at the time and uncertain about my ability to write. The song was written in a short time and many of the lyrics relate to things I had been learning over the years. I have performed it a few times in the past few years. It is a good fit for a church environment or house concerts. I especially enjoy performing it because it is performed accapella. Here are the lyrics and I hope you enjoy them.

SILENCE

Silence, rest in silence: Silence, rest in silence

I hear you call my name, I’ll not remain the same
I’ll listen closely to the words you share, between the noise I hear.
You offer all that’s clear, Into the present day

Silence, rest in silence: Silence, rest in silence

I sit and wait for you, To fill my heart its true,
I sit and wait for the light to shine through,
Through the crack that’s in my heart, It will not break apart
When its filled, when its filled with your light.

Silence, rest in silence: Silence, rest in silence

I will rest in this present moment, Rest in the here and now,
As it offers, as it offers all I need.

Silence, rest in silence: Silence, rest in silence

May we rest in the love you share, when life’s too much to bear,
May we know that you will nurture and sustain, that there’s no one to blame
And you will be there when we fall And to you we will surely call.

Silence, rest in silence: Silence, rest in silence

May you have a peaceful and joyful Christmas season.

Wanda
