I wanted to share w/ ya’ll a new song from my favorite artist — David Wilcox. It’s called “Vow of Silence” — and for me, it’s a beautiful exploration of God’s communication with us.
Music and lyrics below (after you click on “Continue reading”).
I hope you enjoy.
I’ll keep my vow of silence now foreverIt’s the only wayIf you can’t hear my heart when we’re togetherThere’s nothing I could say
The trees explain the wind out in the distanceThe message is so clearI have to send my words through your resistanceSo silent you can hearI walked upon this earth and spoke in beautyTo people all aroundI waved away the words that poured right through meAnd never made a soundFor if I spoke as loud as rolling thunderAnother war could startSo I speak in silent sacred wonderStraight into the heartI’m moving in the waves that roll the oceanMeet me at the shoreThe flowers on my grave can’t stop the motionI’m closer than beforeIf the light has chased off all your deamonsThere’s nothing you must doThere’s no need to explain what you believe inThey’ll feel my love in youI’m giving you the right: let love adore you Across the years and milesI’m living this new life that’s waiting for youSee it in my smile
