If, for a moment, we stand in peace and quietness
And let our Saviour come near to us,
Will not the Holy Spirit like a wind,
Engulf us with the inspiration of His eternal word?
If, for a moment, we give our time to a personal friend
And allow the love of Christ to fill us,
Will we not feel the touch of His hand,
That ministers through our weakness to bless another?
If, for a moment, we stop to gaze at the Cross of Christ
And see the Father weep for the Son;
Will we weep too, and know the passion
Of His glorious victory over evil, suffering and death?
If, for a moment, we stand back from the distraction of life,
And wait for the voice of God to speak;
Might we hear a whisper in the world,
That tells us He is full of love, and never stops His caring?
Take the time, my soul; yes, take the time.
