SSA chorus




Listen to the song and let it tell you how,

Be quiet, be quiet, be still.

Let the angels put their hands on where it hurts, and smooth,

Be quiet, be still.

Ask for prayers around you and bathe in song,

Sit in children's laughter twice a day.

Be quiet, be quiet, be still.


. . .


If you have no hands: write.

If you have no feet: walk,

If you have no voice: sing

And a chorus will carry you.

If you have no eyes: see.

If you have no arms: hug.

Be thankful, be quiet, be still.
