Are You Listening?

Lord, Are You listening?
I don't hear You answering
My desperate plea!

And then You spoke -
“My child, turn off your radio
Tune in to Me!”

“And then perhaps you'll listen
To what I have to say
So I can direct your thoughts
And actions every day.”

Yes, Lord, in the quietness
I can hear You speak
And in Your gentle voice
I find the peace I seek.
