Hymn/Song Information

I hear It often in the dark I hear it in




I hear it often in the dark,
I hear it in the light,
Where is the voice that calls to me
With such a quiet might?


It seems but echo to my thought,
And yet beyond the stars ;
It seems a heart-beat in a hush,
And yet the planet jars !


Oh ! may it be that far within
My inmost soul there lies
A spirit sky, that opens with
Those voices of surprise ?


And can it be, by night and day,
That firmament serene
Is just the heaven where God Himself,
The Father, dwells unseen?


O God within, so close to me
That every thought is plain,
Be Judge, be Friend, be Father still,
And in Thy heaven reign !


Thy heaven is mine, my very soul !
Thy words are sweet and strong ;
They fill my inward silences
With music and with song.


They send me challenges to right,
And loud rebuke my ill ;
They ring my bells of victory,
They breathe my " Peace, be still ! "


They ever seem to say, "My child,
Why seek Me so all day ;
Now journey inward to thyself,
And listen by the way."
