Representative Text

1 Not a sound invades the stillness,
Not a form invades the scene,
Save the voice of my Beloved,
And the person of my King.

Refrain:
Precious, gentle, holy Jesus!
Blessed Bridegroom of my heart,
In thy secret inner chamber,
Thou wilt whisper what Thou art.

2 And within those heav'nly places,
Calmly hushed in sweet repose,
There I drink with joy absorbing,
All the love Thou wouldst disclose. [Refrain]

3 Wrapt in deep, adoring silence,
Jesus, Lord, I dare not move,
Lest I lose the smallest saying
Meant to catch the ear of love. [Refrain]

4 Rest, then, O my soul, contented,
Thou hast reached thy happy place,
In the bosom of thy Saviour,
Gazing up in his dear face. [Refrain]
