Be silent, be silent,
A whisper is heard,
Be silent, and listen,
O treasure each word!

Refrain

Tread softly, tread softly,
The Master is here,
Tread softly, tread softly,
He bids us draw near.

Be silent, be silent,
For holy this place,
This altar that echoes
The message of grace.

Refrain

Be silent, be silent,
Breathe humbly our prayer,
A foretaste of Eden
This moment we share.

Refrain

Be silent, be silent,
His mercy record,
Be silent, be silent
And wait on the Lord.

Refrain
