When Quiet Peace Is Shattered


When quiet peace is shattered
by dreadful noise of war,
and we are bruised and battered
by fighting’s constant roar,
Lord, break the silence of your Word
and let your healing voice be heard.
O let your healing voice be heard.

When troubles still our love-song,
and fear beats hard within,
when anger drowns the dove’s song,
and life’s a noisy din,
Lord, break the silence of your Word
and let your healing voice be heard.
O let your healing voice be heard.

When clashing wills divide us,
and hearts refuse to mend,
when feelings scream inside us,
and agonies won’t end,
Lord, break the silence of your Word
and let your healing voice be heard.
O let your healing voice be heard.
