Dear Lord and Father of Mankind

D E Dear Lord and Father of mankind D A Forgive our foolish ways D F# G Reclothe us in our rightful mind A7 D In purer lives Thy service find Gsus4 G D In deeper reverence, praise O Sabbath rest by Galilee O calm of hills above Where Jesus knelt to share with Thee The silence of eternity Interpreted by love 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 Drop Thy still dews of quietness Till all our strivings cease Take from our souls the strained and stress And let our ordered lives confess The beauty of Thy peace Breathe through the pulses of desire They coolness and Thy balm Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire Speak through the earthquake, wind and fire O still, small voice of calm
