Dear Father, Lord of humankind

Author: John Greenleaf Whittier, 1807-92 Meter: Appears in 434 hymnals Scripture: 1 Kings 19:11-21 Lyrics: 1 Dear Father, Lord of humankind, forgive our foolish ways; reclothe us in our rightful mind: in purer lives thy service find, in deeper reverence, praise, in deeper reverence, praise. 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, rise up and follow thee. 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, interpreted by love! 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, the beauty of thy peace. 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, O still small voice of calm.

We sing your praise, eternal God

Author: Alan Gaunt (b. 1935) Meter: Appears in 1 hymnal Scripture: 1 Kings 19 Lyrics: 1 We sing your praise, eternal God, to whom all praise belongs; but we can never match your love, however loud our songs: 2 Your love which comes so silently, through all the noise we hear; the noise of quarrelling and war, the cries of grief and fear. 3 The winds of doubt uproot our faith, the earthquakes of despair destroy our hope, and fires of hate kill love and stifle prayer. 4 And yet no sound on earth can drown the silence we have heard; the voice of your eternal love; the silence of your Word. 5 It comes to guilty, broken hearts, with challenge and release; prepares us for self-sacrifice and speaks eternal peace.
