If You Stand Very Still
If you stand very still in the heart of a wood
You will hear many wonderful things
The snap of a twig, the wind in the trees
and the whirr of invisible wings.
If you stand very still in the turmoil of life
and you wait for the voice from within,
You'll be led down the quiet ways of wisdom and peace
in a mad world of chaos and din.
If you stand very still and you hold to your faith
you will get all the help that you ask.
You will draw from the silence the things that you need:
hope and courage and strength for your task.
