Sacred Silence/Paz Sagrada

Tom Booth says the inspiration for “Sacred Silence” arrived upon him during group prayer. “The priest stopped talking, I stopped playing music, and we all sat there in beautiful silence.” This new Spanish translation by Iván Díaz and Fr. Juan Sosa unites the wider Church community as we enter together into this profound experience with the God who dwells within.

Sacred silence, holy ocean,
gentle water washing over me;
help me listen, Holy Spirit.
Come and speak to me.

Paz sagrada, mar profundo,
agua viva, corresobre mí.
Quiero oírte, Santo Espíritu,
ven y háblame.
