General (Vol. 2)

A Small Voice

  1. Not the wind that broke the rock,
    Not the quake that shook the ground,
    Not the fire that burned the air
    But the sound that is no sound.
  2. Not the emperor on his throne,
    Not the king of coin and sword,
    Not the prince of power and pomp
    But our loving, giving Lord.
  3. Not the yoke of civil powers,
    Not the rod to goad the weak,
    Not the judge remote and grim
    But the brother of the meek.
  4. He the monarch crowned with thorns,
    He reviled with jeers and rod,
    He Our Saviour Crucified,
    Prince of Peace and Son of God.
