quiet about it lyrics – jesse winchester

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
