by Alice Mary Buckton (1867 - 1944)

The heart worships
Language: English 
Silence in Heav'n,
Silence on Earth
Silence within!
Thy hush, O Lord,
O'er all the world covers the din.
I do not fear to speak of thee in mortal kind
And yet to all thy namelessness I am not blind.
Only I need and kneel again
Thy touch to win;
Silence in Heav'n
Silence on Earth
Silence within!
