Good Afternoon


Ezekiel 1:24-26
And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings,
like the noise of great waters,
as the voice of the Almighty,
the voice of speech,
as the noise of an host:
when they stood, they let down their wings.
And there was a voice from the firmament
that was over their heads,
when they stood,
and had let down their wings.
And above the firmament
that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne,
as the appearance of a sapphire stone:
and upon the likeness of the throne
was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

(Doesn’t this read like poetry?)

What is the letting down of the wings?
People so often say,
“How do you get the voice of the Lord?”
Here is the secret.
They heard the voice when they stood and let down their wings.

Be still! Just now be still!
Something thy soul hath never heard,
Something unknown to any song of bird,
Something unknown to any wind, or wave, or star,
A message from the Fatherland afar,
That with sweet joy the homesick soul shall thrill,
Cometh to thee if thou cast but be still.

Be still! Just now be still!
There comes a presence very mind and sweet;
White are the sandals of His noiseless feet.
It is the Comforter whom Jesus sent
To teach thee what the words He uttered meant,
The willing, waiting spirit, He doth fill.
If thou would’st hear His message,
Dear soul, be still!

Be still . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
