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.

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]
