Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 Oft in silent meditation
Back to Galilee we go,
With our fancy’s brightest vision
View the scenes of long ago.
Sweet and precious unto me
Are the thoughts of Galilee;
Sweeter still the love I feel,
Which to me he doth reveal.
2 In the early morn the Master,
By the sunlit Galilee,
Taught the eager, waiting people
As he now is teaching me. [Refrain]
3 “Peace,” he said, and calm o’er-spreading
Hushed the raging wind and sea,
So his voice to holy quiet
Brought the storm of life for me. [Refrain]
4 Tranquil as the peaceful waters
In the twilight’s afterglow,
So my heart is safely resting
In the grace he doth bestow. [Refrain]
5 As the sea his form reflected,
And the wavelets sang his praise,
So may I show forth his glory
From a glad heart all my days. [Refrain]Source: Songs of Grace and Glory: A New and Inspiring Selection of Sacred Songs for Evangelical Use and General Worship #104
