Silent Mercies

Representative Text

1 Silently as the twilight shadows
Fall when daylight fades away;
So the mercies of our Father
Come to bless us day by day.

Chorus:
Silently, so silently,
But still fraught with gracious pow’r,
Come the blessings of the Father
To His children ev’ry hour.

2 Silently, but oh! how sweetly
Comes the Spirit, full of grace;
Whisp’ring joy and hope and comfort,
Pointing up to His dear face. [Chorus]

3 Silently as falling snowflakes,
Speed the white-winged angels down;
Cheering us in life’s great battle,
Bringing some the victor’s crown. [Chorus]

4 Silently as comes the starlight,
Softly banishing night’s gloom;
So the love of our dear Father
Lights the passage to the tomb. [Chorus]

5 Silently, oh! blessed Spirit,
Come and dwell in every heart,
Till we reach Thy glorious presence
And behold Thee as Thou art. [Chorus]
