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.
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!
4  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.
5  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.
6  Breathe through the pulses of desire
Thy coolness and Thy balm; Let sense be dumb, its heats expire: Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
0 still small voice of calm!
John G. Whittier, 187a
