Lyricist Peter Link collaborated with composer Carol Jay to bring us this quietly joyful song of gratitude for the opportunity to “…stand in the silence of my being with the phosphorus of heavens shining down on me, like a blanket o’er this earth in solemn presence shining on as far as I can see. And in this quiet place, time’s insignificance makes me laugh at all the ways that I run my life. I watch the summer moon and here in this quiet grace I know I’m all I need to be, and the world is mine…”

This Quiet Place
Music by Carol Jay
Lyrics by Peter Link

In this world
Where the crush of life just happens
In the rush
I don’t stop to watch the moon in the sky
‘Cause it’s all that I can do
To keep on runnin’
Rolling through the tangles of my mind

Yet the moon
Hangs in silent stillness o’er me
While I run
And I chase the dreams that pass me by
I remember then the things
That I have lived by
And return again to the stillness of the
sky

And in this quiet place
Time doesn’t matter much
The world goes turning on its own
In its own time
I watch the summer moon
And here in this quiet grace

I know I’m all I need to be
And the world is mine

Here I stand
In the silence of my being
With the phosphorus of heavens
Shining down on me
Like a blanket o’er this earth
In solemn presence
Shining on as far as I can see

And in this quiet place
Time’s insignificance
Makes me laugh at all the ways
That I run my life
I watch the summer moon
And here in this quiet grace
I know I’m all I need to be
And the world is mine

Yes in this silent grace
This sum of all things in space
I feel the oneness of all life
In this quiet place
