Not a sound invades the stillness


    • Not a sound invades the stillness, 
    • not a form invades the scene, 
    • save the voice of my Beloved 
    • and the person of my King. 

    • Precious, gentle, holy Jesus! 
    • Blessed Bridegroom of my heart, 
    • in Thy secret inner chamber, 
    • Thou wilt whisper what Thou art. 

    • And within those heavenly places, 
    • calmly hushed in sweet repose, 
    • there I drink, with joy absorbing 
    • all the love Thou wouldst disclose. 

    • Wrapped in deep adoring silence, 
    • Jesus, Lord, I dare not move, 
    • lest I lose the smallest saying 
    • meant to catch the ear of love. 

    • Rest then, O my soul, contented: 
    • Thou hast reached thy happy place, 
    • in the bosom of thy Saviour, 
    • gazing up in His dear face. 
    • In Tune two, the chorus is only sung after verses 2 & 4.
