Peace cover you, within without the same,
    In shining silence and in peace so deep
    No dream of sin and evil can come near
    Your quiet mind. And then in stillness wake.
    First there is silence; then awakening.
    Now is the time appointed for the end
    Of dreaming. Still the cradle where you come
    To be reborn. The Christ is stirring in
    The home that He has chosen as His Own.
    His vision rests upon your eyes, and soon
    You will behold His face, and will forget
    The fantasies that seemed to be so real
    Until the stillness came. The Son of God
    Has come to join you now. His shining hand
    Is on your shoulder. And God's silent Voice
    Speaks ceaselessly of Heaven. You will hear
    His single message calling to His Own
    From His abiding place, to wake in God.
