Song Lyrics

"Sometimes It Takes Silence"

by Joy Holden
Album: As Long as You Breathe

You could pray and he could speak
Like the sound of (many) rushing waters
Flooding at your feet
You could ask and he could give
In the way that you expected
In the time that you wished, but

Sometimes it takes silence, to hear the voice of God
To understand his goodness, with everything you've got
To really know his favor, beyond the noise of life
Sometimes it takes silence, to hear the voice of God

You could pray and he could speak
As the voice of roaring thunder
Loud and clearly
You could ask and he could give
All that you anticipated
All that you thought you needed, but

Sometimes it takes silence, to hear the voice of God
To understand his goodness, with everything you've got
To really know his favor, beyond the noise of life
Sometimes it takes silence, to hear the voice of God

Sometimes it takes silence, to hear the voice of God
To understand his goodness, with everything you've got
To really know his favor, beyond the noise of life
Sometimes it takes silence
Oh, Sometimes it takes silence
To hear the voice of God
