104. Tread Softly

1 Be silent, be silent,
A whisper is heard,
Be silent, and listen,
Oh, treasure each word!

Refrain:
Tread softly, tread softly,
The Master is here,
Tread softly, tread softly,
He bids us draw near. [Refrain]

2 Be silent, be silent,
For holy this place,
This altar that echoes
The message of grace. [Refrain]

3 Be silent, be silent,
Breathe humbly our prayer,
A foretaste of Eden
This moment we share. [Refrain]

4 Be silent, be silent,
His mercy record,
Be silent, be silent
And wait on the Lord. [Refrain]
