    Jaylene Johnson's fourth studio release, recorded at Signpost Music and produced by Murray Pulver. Warm, acoustic, authentic, soul-nourishing folk/pop music. Digipak with gorgeous artwork by award-winning graphic artist, Roberta Renee Hansen. 12 original tracks.

    By the time the first chorus of the opening song played I said to myself ‘Oh my - this is seriously good!’...The album has just the right amount of push and pull with tempo shifts, mood changes, with solid musicianship warming the centre and serving these 12 stellar songs. ‘Let The Silence Speak’ moved me to tears... Brian Doerksen


    ...there's a lovely settledness about this project that you recognize in an artist who has come into her own. The songs are beautifully crafted and performed— the sort that draw you into that liminal space where newness and insight are sometimes found. Steve Bell

    What happens when a pro songwriter converges at the point of faith, suffering and truth-telling? Potter & Clay is what happens. Jaylene has heartbreakingly and beautifully outdone herself at the meeting place of craftsmanship and the human journey. Alana Levandoski

Let the Silence Speak
©2015 Jaylene Johnson

Another empty room
Painted in baby blue
Another broken dream
(Of) toys and tiny shoes
Curled in a rocking chair
No consolation there
No way to voice the pain
With sadness everywhere

When all that you can do is weep

Let the silence speak
God still knows everything we need
When we don’t know what to say
We can know that Jesus hears us anyway
Let the silence speak

Ooooh

Sometimes there are no words
No lessons to be learned
And people try their best
They only make it worse
No comfort to be found
Tears fall without a sound
But angels mark each one
For this is Holy Ground

Sometimes the hurt is just too deep

Let the silence speak
God still knows everything we need
When we don’t know what to say
We can know that Jesus hears us anyway
Let the silence speak

Through the anger
Through the sorrow through despair
(From) right where we are
God will meet us there

We’re not forgotten
We’re not alone
In the silence Jesus hears us
So let Him hold you close

Let the silence speak
