The quiet is active tonight as I lay.
For each one dear to me, I pray.

I know He hears the words I say.

In His time He will act by night and day.


His promises I believe.

His grace I do receive.

His miracles I perceive

Are the gifts to me He leaves.


I show my love to the One who

Has great things for me to do.

His plans are good, it is true.

He gives me life, grace, hope, too.


In the stillness, God moves still

Creating goodness by His will

With His mercy my life He does fill

To give me purpose forever until


He calls me home to that Beulah Land

Where peace and love together stand,

Where all continues to be more than grand

As I worship Him with the heavenly band.
