Silently Searching

"Canst thou by searching find out God?  Canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?" (Job 11:7).  "God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding" (Psalm 47:7).  "He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit" (Proverbs 17:27). "He was transfigured before them… Peter answered… let us make three tabernacles… for he wist not what to say… And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is My beloved Son: hear Him" (Mark 9:2-7). 

Can we by searching find out God? 
The answer, by His grace, is YES! 
We shouldn't think that this is odd,
For those who seek Him He will bless.

Our God is King and is commanding
That we should now observe His ways,
Approaching Him with understanding
Instead of songs of mindless praise. 

When Peter knew not what to say
At Christ our Lord's transfiguration,
He broke the silence anyway,
Till heaven stopped his conversation.

Lord, help us silently to hear
Your voice as we have searched Your Word
And You have made Your teaching clear
As we perceive what we have heard.
