The Loudest Silence

by Alex Reece
(Fort Wayne, IN)

“How do you respond to these charges,” The voice of Pontius Pilate,
But no response was needed, our Savior remained silent.
Not a word to try to defend from hatred, blood, violence,
Facing what it took to free, He spoke the loudest silence.
The silence whispered, spoke, and shouted, it said the words “I love you.”
And through this silence our path was rerouted, to go to the home above you.
The silence meant He gave Himself up; He gave His life for sinners,
The silence screamed “I’ll lift you up to the home where you are winners!”
He had no words to defend Himself; He defended us with silence,
He chose to let the charges be spoken and give Him over to violence.
The silence still speaks today; it says that He will set us free,
The silence humbly shows the way and makes a home for me.
