Rest and Silence

I wanted an end
To let go worldly bonds;
Had hope faded and died?
Or lame faith abandoned?
Why was there no joy
Of recognition in my life?
I wanted an end
To internalised violence;
To let discord conclude,
And let the rest be silence.

I needed to die
To self service and sin;
Retrieved hope must revive
And full faith persevere;
Joy’s welcome return
In the light of a Saviour,
Finding only in Him
Godly rhythm and cadence;
Harmony – reign once more,
And let the past be silenced.
