The piano sets the scene for this piece with a distinctive minor progression that immediately draws the listener into a spirit of contemplation. The simple stepwise tune rises like a prayer to reach into the hope that is ours through God's promises. The meaningful lyric “in the stillness of this place, we are listening for Your grace” moves into an impassioned plea for the presence of God in our hearts and lives. This prayer of longing crescendoes to a brief quote from “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” before winding down to a hushed ending.
