Unbroken Silence
(The Prayer of St. Brigid) ©

(lyrics by John Marshall & Elizabeth Wells music by Barbara Gallagher)

John Marshall
North Carolina, USA
1994

Lo, unbroken silence, I adore thee.
Forsake me not during my time of prayer.
Guardian angels, convene around me.

Lord, humbly my heart pleads solely to be
safe by your side through eternity there.
Lo, unbroken silence, I adore thee.

Traveling onward, cloaked by a desert sea,
into the sky but for a sign I stare.
Guardian angels convene around me.

Utter stillness of the night, come free me.
Starlight, guide me across the sand so bare.
Lo, unbroken silence, I adore thee.

Dedicated to the Holy Trinity,
this fervent journey by moonlight I dare.
Guardian angels, convene around me.

Shimmering dreams foretell that I may see
the path God has chosen for me with such care.
Lo, unbroken silence, I adore thee.
Guardian angels convene around me.
