Quiet About It

Be of good cheer
It's all in His plan
He's walking with us
And He speaks through every man

But I have this notion
Call it my fear
That I will die alone
And even He won't be there

But when I feel that way
I thirst, and I want to shout it
Trust me Lord, to be quiet about it

Yes, I am lost
But He is leading me home
And He's my companion
When my friends have up and gone

But still I get lonely
And sometimes I doubt
I want to do right
But it seems like only wrong gets out

But when I feel that way
I thirst, and I want to shout
Trust me Lord, to be quiet about it

Oh quiet about it
Yeah, I'll be quiet about it
