In The Still Of The Night
At 4am in the still of the night
A blessed anointing fell from on high
As a thousand children of His love did sing
For it was through their song that the bells of heaven did ring.
Their song was simple and so sincere,
yet, filled with His power from above.
“Oh how I love Jesus” did I hear.
For it was from the depth of their heart that this song had come,
Singing of a greater love than any man had ever known.
Lifted in spirit by these angels of grace,
I arose from my bed and bowed my head in humble praise.
For it was from my sleep which unto this I arose,
still with the burdens of the previous day, still carrying life’s load.
But now it was 4am and in the still of the night,
That this blessed anointing touched my life.
Funny it seems,
That when you think you cannot take much more,
He in his infinite love stands at your hearts door.
Oh yes, it was 4am and in the still….of the night.
