Hymn 135g

Play music

1.Dear Lord and Maker of mankind,
Forgive our foolish ways!
Re-clothe us in our rightful mind,
In purer lives Thy service find,
In deeper rev'rence praise,
In deeper rev'rence 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,
Rise up and follow Thee.
3. O sabbath rest by Galilee!
O calm of hills above,
Where Jesus knelt to share with Thee
The silence of eternity,
Interpreted by love!
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 ofThy peace,
The beauty of Thy peace.
5. Breathe through the heats of our desire
Thy coolness and Thy balm;
Let sense be dumb,l et flesh retire;
Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still small voice of calm!
O still small voice of calm!
