My Soul In Stillness Waits (Marty Haugen)


For you, O Lord, my soul in stillness waits,
truly my hope is in you.
1. O Lord of Light, our only hope of glory,
Your radiance shines in all who look to you,
Come, light the hearts of all in dark and shadow. (Refrain)

2. O Spring of Joy, rain down upon our spirits,
Our thirsty hearts are yearning for your Word,
Come, make us whole, be comfort to our hearts. (Refrain)

3. O Root of Life, implant your seed within us,
And in your advent draw us all to you,
Our hope reborn in dying and in rising. (Refrain)

4. O Key of Knowledge, guide us in our pilgrimage,
We ever seek, yet unfulfilled remain,
Open to us the pathway of your peace. (Refrain)

Adaptation of the "O" Antiphons

Composer: Marty Haugen (b. 1950)

  1. We sang this hymn in church yesterday at Charleston Second Presbyterian. What is connection to Charleston beach walk? Martha F. Barkley
