I Needed The Quiet


I needed the quiet, so He drew me aside
Into the shadows where we could confide.

Away from the bustle where all the day long
I hurried and worried when active and strong.

I needed the quiet, though at first I rebelled.
But gently, so gently, my cross He upheld.

And whispered so sweetly of spiritual things
Though weakened in body, my spirit took wings

To heights never dreamed of when active all day;
He loved me so greatly, He drew me away.

I needed the quiet--no prison my bed--
But a beautiful valley of Blessings instead.

A place to grow richer--in Jesus to hide--
I needed the quiet, so He drew me aside.
