Advent II - Silence

Hold these seconds precious in your hands
Breathing in the stillness.
Shut the door on all the noise
And the hurrying
The rustle of bags
And the endless, endless rush and chatter
Of all the wanting and the doing.
Sit down and in the praying and the silence
Let the darkness be at bay.
Because it’s a weary world out there,
And the cold creeps in around the edges.
So let us wrap ourselves with silence
Just for these moments.
