[[Full Lyrics]] [Verse 1] Dear Lord and Father of mankind, Forgive our foolish ways; Rclothe us in our rightful mind, In purer lives Thy service find, In deeper reverence, praise. [Verse 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. [Verse 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! [Verse 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. [Verse 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.
