THE PRESENCE

In the early morning,
in the silence of pre-dawn,
I pause to pray - remembering -
The Father and The Son.
There in the silent Presence,
Nature too has paused.
Mother Nature listens,
in the way of Nature's laws.
Chorus
Renewal is in silence. Listening follows prayer;
and watching for the Presence, that is always everywhere.
Like the flutter of a bird's wing, when it ascends in flight,
and the dawning of the morning, that calls us from the night,
all are signs of the Presence - flowing everywhere.
In our time of silence, we will meet it there.

When we merge with morning,
called into the day,
the morning news is warning -
trouble's on the way.
Yet - also it's affirming -
we take our place with care,
daily we are learning -
to be the Presence there.
Chorus
Tragedy and wonder - Life is moving on,
through the clouds and thunder, to the re-emerging sun.
We can meet them all, one day at a time,
answering the call, with the Presence in our mind.
We can be the Presence, living everywhere.
Renewal is in silence, and listening after prayer.
