Van Morrison jazzy chant-like rock song "Hymns to the Silence" on the CD of the same title describes the yearning of a person separated from his lover. In the emptiness and stillness of the night, he cries out, "When I'm away from you, I just have to sing, my hymns to the silence." He then retreats to the countryside where he connects with his soul and his feeling of oneness with God. Now he addresses his love, "Can you feel the silence?" In this song, silence is the seedbed for yearning, love, and union with the Divine.
