In Grace Thereof--By Rick Parise--United States

In Grace Thereof

Like the babbling brook
The spirit yearns
Of quiet moments
The heart discerns

To deny the flesh
And feed thy soul
To hear the voice
Still and small

Like flowering Love
A King Of Kings
Of Knowledge and Wisdom
If to believe

A gracious promise
Set forth in love
In quiet moments
In Grace thereof
