Teach us, O God, that silent language that says all things.
Teach our souls to remain silent in your presence:
that we may adore you in the depths of our being
and await all things from you,
while asking of you nothing but the accomplishment of your will.
Teach us to remain quiet under your action and produce in our souls
that deep and simple prayer
which says nothing and expresses everything,
which specifies nothing and includes everything.
Père Grou, SJ, 1731-1803, French Jesuit priest
The Westminster Collection of Christian Prayers slightly modernized
For God alone my soul waits in silence
from him comes my salvation.
