He Answered Nothing

♫ Turn on your speakers!


--Text by A.B Simpson

Turn on your speakers

“He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He opened not His mouth.”

Isaiah 53:7

Turn on your speakers

The day when Jesus stood alone

And felt the hearts of men like stone,

And knew He came but to atone--

That day "He held His peace."

Turn on your speakers

They witnessed falsely to His word.

They bound Him with a cruel cord,

And mockingly proclaimed Him Lord;

"But Jesus held His peace."

Turn on your speakers

They spat upon Him in the face,

They dragged Him on from place to place,

They heaped upon Him all disgrace;

"But Jesus held His peace."

Turn on your speakers

My friend, have you for far much less,

With rage, which you called righteousness,

Resented slights with great distress?

Your Savior "held His peace."


Turn on your speakers

There is no spectacle in all the Bible so sublime as the silent Savior answering not a word to the men who were maligning Him, and whom He could have laid prostrate at His feet by one look of divine power, or one word of fiery rebuke.

But He let them say and do their worst, and He stood in the power of STILLNESS

– God’s holy silent Lamb!

Turn on your speakers

There’s a stillness that lets God work for us, and holds our peace; the stillness that ceases from its contriving and its self vindication, and its expedients of wisdom and forethought, and lets God provide and answer the cruel blow, in His own unfailing, faithful love.

Turn on your speakers

How often we lose God’s interposition by taking up our own cause, and striking for our defense.

Turn on your speakers

Have you suffered an injustice, been falsely accused, misunderstood, or misjudged?

Leave it in His hands...

Do not take revenge, my friends,

but leave room for God's wrath,

for it is written:

"It is mine to avenge;

I will repay," says the Lord.

Do not be overcome by evil,

but overcome evil with good.

Romans 12:19, 21



Let God Bring Justice into Your Life
