Every now and then, a hymn hits you exactly where you are in life. As #Episcopalians in a #cathedral church with a strong tradition of fine #Anglican music, we are spoiled by our wonderful #choirs and very strong congregational singing. But once in a while...you hear your favorite hymn, unexpectedly, and it re-centers your #Christian#faith .
“Dear Lord and Father of Mankind” is a poem by an #American#Quaker set to the tune “Repton” by the illustrious #British composer Hubert Parry.
Dear Lord and Father of mankind,
Forgive our foolish ways!
Reclothe 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 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.

Day 20 of the #hoopsyprint#gettoknowme insta-challenge - ‘hobby’. Designing and making jewellery is a much loved hobby as well as a business for me, and so is singing. I'm lucky enough to sing with a beautiful bunch of people as part of the @soulsanctuarygospelchoir AND as part of a wonderful backing vocal group for the incredibly talented and all-round amazing @izofitzroy ! 💞💞💓💞💞 #choirs#choirlife#alto#choir#gospel
