In My World Of Silence

Morning Story and Dilbert

Vintage Dilbert
January 12, 2012

My world can be so silent
And it sometimes brings a tear,
The laughter of the children,
I long, one day, to hear

To hear their little voices
As they play their childhood games,
Longing to hear them sing their songs
And pray in Jesus name

To hear the birds each morning,
Greeting another day,
But my world is one of silence
One that’s hard to convey

I wish I could express to you
But I really don’t know how,
I’m not sure that you would understand
What I’m sharing with you now

For it can be real lonely
When I feel I’m not a part
Of what I see around me,
It often tugs at my heart

But though our two worlds differ,
Jesus is by my side
It’s in this common faith we share,
God’s love in us abides

For He is the hope I have
And the new song on my lips,
My hearing may be limited
But my spirit connects with His

And with my fellow believers
As we worship side by side,
For I have found no greater love
Than the love of Jesus Christ.

  2. I am good friends with a deaf interpreter. Not only does Judy sign well, she also seems to understand with her heart. I tend to think that Judy’s ability is a gift from God to a silent world.
