O the love of my Lord


O the love of my Lord is the essence

Of all that I have here on earth

All the beauty I see He has given to me

And His giving is gentle as silence


Every day, every hour, every moment,

Has been blesses by the strength of His love

At the turn of each tide He is here at my side

And his touch is as gentle as silence


There have been times when Iíve turned from his presence

And I have walked other paths, other ways

But Iíve called on His name in the dark of my shame

And His mercy was gentle as silence
