February 1986


you say to me to be still

that I'll upset an applecart

that your values will be challenged

but I ask you

how could I be still?

He's done so much for me

that not only should I speak it

I should shout it from the highest hills

proclaim it with every deed

every chance I get


how could I be still?

God's been so much for me

and will be so much more


how could you say be still?

and deny me my voice

by which you deny me my God


From a talk with a friend who said:

"I hope they understand" late at night on

a Simcoe retreat.
