This is a beautiful song that can be used privately to begin a time of personal worship and/or meditation. It's also just as useful if you are leading a quiet day or retreat - helping to pull attention away from our surroundings and the everyday cares and worries buzzing around in our heads and open us to the inner movement of the Holy Spirit.

It is written by Margaret Rizza, and is featured on her CD Fountain of Life.

You will find the words of the song below the video clip.

Silent, surrendered
Silent, surrendered, calm and still,
open to the word of God.
Heart humbled to his will,
offered is the servant of God.
