Listen to the silence<br />
Why Will You Not Listen<br />By Michael Card<br />
Is not He who formed the ear worth the time it takes to hear? <br />
Should He who formed our lips for speaking <br />Be not heeded when He speaks? <br />
Will you not listen? <br />Why won&apos;t you listen? <br />
God has spoken love to us <br />Why will you not listen? <br />
Listen to the sacred silence <br />Listen to the Holy Word Listen as He speaks through living Parables that must be heard ...
Will you not listen? <br />Why won&apos;t you listen? <br />
God has spoken peace to us Why will you not listen? <br />
He spoke a word of flesh and blood <br />Flesh and blood that bled and died <br />Bled and died just to be heard <br />
How could you not hear this Word? <br />Why will you not hear this Word? <br />
Will you not listen? <br />Why won&apos;t you listen? <br />
God has spoken hope to us<br /> How could you not listen? <br />Why will you not listen? <br />
