The Sweetest Song
by Jeanie Killion
Drops fall down my window glass;
My life goes on, with longings --
met and unmet.
Like exquisite music,
my soul sings
Silent songs of grace received,
of heartaches grieved,
and, I believe
There is a tune to silent songs
only God can hear.
Years go by & tears fall down;
This heart rises up with hope again --
for joys to come.
I walk in solitary places,
but not alone.
God is there & sings me new songs
in the night
& joy-songs in the morning.
He, my Music Teacher & my Song,
is the sweetest tune.
In silence, I hear Him sing,
"Come. Come, fly to Me with longings
Only I can meet."
but cannot drown out His voice.
Like deep reverberations of a melody
I've heard a thousand times,
His familiar song; a hum of hope --
Lyrics of love and promise
only I can hear.
