479 ~ Tread Softly



1

Be silent, be silent,
A whisper is heard;
Be silent, and listen,
Oh, treasure each word.


Refrain

Tread softly, tread softly,
The Master is here;
Tread softly, tread softly,
He bids us draw near.


2

Be silent, be silent,
For holy this place,
This altar that echoes
The message of grace.


3

Be silent, be silent,
Breathe humbly our prayer;
A foretaste of Eden
This moment we share.


4

Be silent, be silent,
His mercy record;
Be silent, be silent,
And wait on the Lord.
