Scripture: 1 Corinthians 14:33a
1 Dear Lord and Father of mankind Forgive our fev'rish ways;
Reclothe us in our rightful mind, In purer lives thy service find,
In deeper reverence, praise.
2 In simple trust like theirs who heard Beside the Syrian sea
The gracious calling of the Lord, Let us, like them, without a word
Rise up and follow thee.
3 Oh, Sabbath rest by Galilee, Oh, calm of hills above,
Where Jesus knelt to share with thee The silence of eternity,
Interpreted by love!
4 Drop thy still dews of quietness, Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress, And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of thy peace.
5 Breathe through the heats of our desire Thy coolness and thy balm;
Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire; Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still, small voice of calm!
