I heard silence speaking to me
to be silent
to question my soul
to hear the voice of God.

I Heard Silence Speaking to Me - KP Yohannan - Gospel for AsiaIt is late after midnight
I’ve been sitting alone
leaning against the wooden pillars
in my poomugam* in utter silence.

In silence His voice I heard
of love and mercy
correction and comforts
Peace filled my soul.

*A poomugam is a special type of front porch common to many very old houses in the South Indian village where I grew up.
