Hymn/Song Information

Dear Lord and Father of mankind Forgive




Dear Lord and Father of mankind,
Forgive our foolish ways
re-clothe us in our rightful mind;
In purer lives Thy service find,
|:In deeper reverence, praise. :|


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. :|


O Sabbath rest by Galilee!
O calm of hills above,
Where Jesus knelt to share with thee
The silence of eternity,
|:Interpreted by love! :|


With that deep hush subduing all
Our words and works that drown
The tender whisper of Thy call,
As noiseless let Thy blessing fall
|:As fell Thy manna down. :|


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. :|


Breathe through the
hearts 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! :|
