The Quiet of the Water

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Walter Farquharson
Tune Name: CORKUM

Lyrics as Poetry

The quiet of the water,
the awesomeness of sky,
call to my inner being:
I wonder “Who am I?”

Life’s given by the good earth,
renewed by falling rain.
There’s beauty in all laughter,
and tenderness in pain.

The world around speaks clearly
of God who loves us still.
There’s healing in creation;
our emptiness is filled.
