I was just playing hymns on the piano and stopped to read the words. I can’t imagine having sung this song so many times without actually hearing the inspired message.
I wander through the still of night
When solitude is everywhere.
Alone, beneath the starry light,
And yet I know that God is there.
I kneel upon the grass to pray;
An answer comes without a voice.
It takes my burden all away.
And makes my aching heart rejoice.
When I am filled with strong desire
And ask a boon of Him, I see
No miracle of living fire,
But what I ask flows into me.
And when the tempest rages high
I feel no arm around me thrust,
But every storm goes rolling by
When I repose in Him my trust.
Theodore E. Curtis, 1872-1957
