During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

121. Be Still

Text Information
First Line: Be still, be still, be still
Title: Be Still
Author: Janet McDonald (2014)
Language: English
Publication Date: 2015
Topic: Healing: Silence
Copyright: © 2014 Janet McDonald. Used by permission.
Notes: This chant uses Psalm 46:10. It is a slow, repeated chant, intended to be used without needing to look at words. As it is repeated, the words and the repeated long note of the chant will allow people opportunity to experience the stilling of God through them. So, it is best used in a time of preparation for prayer, possibly at the beginning of a meditative style of service.
