Many voices can be heard all about
Loud or soft, sharp or dull,
Even a few as fountains of wisdom,
But most as a wasteful, selfish wandering stream.
Good words settle within to encourage
As true soothing thoughts move peacefully over the soul
Rise up from your spirit,
Internal thoughts of your own voice
Touch your inner being;
Then, a divine revelation
In creative enlightenment from God
His Voice of delight can speak within you
As a “still, small voice”
In you and through you!
Your inner voice comes alive in new Holy Spirit rebirth
The Majestic Voice most powerful and most beautiful,
As a parable, a secret hidden from many others
Yet, so intimate within you;
The discipline of the inner ear
Words and voices discerned
True knowledge grows Rock Solid
On the foundation of the written “Word made flesh”
Made known, matured in you!
Thoughts and words of the “evil one” often masquerade,
But power and authority of the Name above all
Filters and sorts out
Sifts and purifies the clear flow of the crystal Spirit flames;
True communion with your Savior of Truth,
Eternal grasp of salvation
As we stand strong now and forever
A new creation with a new heart,
Mercifully enlightened souls from our God.
New songs of worship fill each one
Whether in constant prayer-filled warfare
Or resting on heavenly clouds of peace,
Melodies of Heaven clothe the mind and soul
With comfort and kindness
Whitest robes of worship.
Even the voice of a distant sparrow
Or an angel’s call from Mount Zion,
The inner ear knows and delights
Above all in the Voice of our Shepherd Lord within
Who lifts us up so near,
So close before His Holy Throne.
