“Let me be still and listen to the truth.”
re-written by Lisa Trevino in
rhythmic poetry guided by Spirit
If I will lay aside the ego’s voice
however loudly it may seem to call;
If I will not accept its petty gifts
which give me nothing at all;
If I will listen with an open mind,
not knowing what salvation is;
Then I will hear the mighty Voice of truth,
quiet power, strong stillness;
If I listen and hear my Father speak to me
through His appointed Voice;
Silencing meaningless thunder,
showing the way to peace – my choice;
If I am still today and listen to the truth,
not deceived by voices of the dead
Which tell me they have found the source
of life, and offer that instead;
If I attend them not, but listen to the truth,
unafraid to circumvent them;
But, hearing all of them not, walk lightly
past their meaningless persuasion;
Going past all things which do not speak
of Him Who holds my happiness
Within His hand held out to me in welcome,
in love, and peaceful bliss;
If I hear only Him today, one Voice,
and do not wait longer to reach Him
Today, the promise of God’s Word is kept,
if I am silent enough to listen.
He will speak to me with miracles
a thousand times as happy and wonderful
As those I have ever dreamed of or
have wished for in my dreams at all.
His miracles are true and
they never fade when dreaming ends.
They end the dream instead forever and
these are what, to me, God sends.
If I prepare myself for miracles today,
allowing for my Father’s pledge to me
And to all of my brothers be kept,
I will hear today and truly see
As I listen to the Word which lifts
the veil which lies upon the earth
And wakes all those who sleep,
cannot see, nor remember their worth
God calls to them through me,
needing me to speak to them to hear
For who could reach God’s Son but
my Father calling through me here?
If I hear Him today, and offer
my voice to speak to the multitudes
Who wait to hear the Word that He speaks
today that Salvation includes
It is here, given unto me, that
I will learn my function from the One
Who shows it in my Father’s name
for me; I am my Father’s Son.
I will hear a Voice Which will resound
throughout the world through me.
The Bringer of miracles needs me
to receive them first so I can be
The joyous giver of what I received.
Thus salvation starts and ends
When everything is mine and
given away to everyone He sends
This is how it will remain with me
forever and the lesson learned.
This is how I see what is my right
and not something to be earned.
If I practice giving, not the way I understood
it as, but as it really is.
I will remember the Whole Kingdom
and know that ALL is truly His.
If I am still and listen for the truth –
I can ask and expect the answer
What does it mean to give and to receive?
The truth waits at the altar.
The answer to this request has been
waiting long to be received by me.
It will begin the ministry for which I came;
which will set the world free
From thinking giving is a way to lose,
readying the world to understand.
That salvation is not what is in the world,
but in our Father’s hand.
If I am still and listen to the truth today,
I will come to realize
That for each five minutes spent in listening,
thousands open their eyes
As their minds are opened to the truth,
they will hear the Holy Word I hear.
And when the hour is past, I will
again release a thousand more from fear,
Who pause to ask that truth be given them,
with me – the Holy Word is kept
Through my receiving it to give away,
the world learns why it wept,
By teaching what giving means by learning
it and letting Him be heard.
I must reinforce my choice to hear
and to receive the Holy Word.
By my reminder, given to myself
often and throughout my day:
Let me be still and listen to the truth;
I am the messenger of God today
My voice is His, to give what I receive.
So, I must say, “Let me be still”
And let me listen to and share the truth today
as I learn of My Father’s will.
