Hymn/Song Information

MEEKNESS




Descend, celestial Dove, and bring
Sweet peace on thine expanded wing;
Subdue my pride, my wrath appease,
And bid tumultuous passions cease.


Give me a temper all benign,
Let love in every action shine;
And the soft cords of friendship bind
My heart to all of human kind.


Provoked, let me not do or say
What will not bear a strict survey;
And should I injuries sustain,
Silent and calm may I remain.
