The silence may be deafening, the darkness thick,
The loneliness heartbreaking and the way too steep.
Rest, rest dear beloved, in His loving care,
Shed all your worries for Him to bear.
Lovingkindness and tenderness He longs to bestow,
To His dear beloved, He longs for you to know.
Through valleys and mountaintops He leads,
Comfort, strength and victory He gives!
