Dear God, Compassionate and Kind

Author: John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892) Meter: with repeat Appears in 475 hymnals Scripture: 1 Kings 19:1-18 Lyrics: 1 Dear God, compassionate and kind, forgive our foolish ways. Re-clothe 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. Topics: Call and Vocation; Forgiveness; Lent (season); Peace of God Used With Tune: REPTON

He Comes to Us As One Unknown

Author: Timothy Dudley-Smith (1926-); Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) Meter: Appears in 10 hymnals Scripture: 1 Kings 19:1-18 Lyrics: 1 He comes to us as one unknown, a breath unseen, unheard; as though within a heart of stone, or shriveled seed in darkness sown, a pulse of being stirred. 2 He comes when souls in silence lie and thoughts of day depart, half-seen upon the inward eye, a falling star across the sky of night within the heart. 3 He comes to us in sound of seas, the ocean's fume and foam; yet small and still upon the breeze, a wind that stirs the tops of trees, a voice to call us home. 4 He comes in love as once he came by flesh and blood and birth; to bear within our mortal frame a life, a death, a saving name for every child of earth. 5 He comes in truth when faith is grown; believed, obeyed, adored: the Christ in all the Scriptures shown, as yet unseen, but not unknown, our Saviour and our Lord. Topics: Call and Vocation; Advent; Easter (third Sunday); Salvation/Redemption Used With Tune: LOBT GOTT, IHR CHRISTEN Text Sources: The Quest of the Historical Jesus, 1910

Come, living God, when least expected

Author: Alan Gaunt (b. 1935) Meter: Appears in 7 hymnals Scripture: 1 Kings 19:1-15 Lyrics: 1 Come, living God, when least expected, when minds are dull and hearts are cold, through sharpening word and warm affection revealing truths as yet untold. 2 Break from the tomb in which we hide you to speak again in startling ways; break through the words in which we bind you to resurrect our lifeless praise. 3 Come now, as once you came to Moses within the bush alive with flame; or to Elijah on the mountain, by silence pressing home your claim. 4 So, let our minds be sharp to read you in sight or sound or printed page, and let us greet you in our neighbours, in ardent youth or mellow age. 5 Then, through our gloom, your Son will meet us as vivid truth and living Lord, exploding doubt and disillusion to scatter hope and joy abroad. 6 Then we will share his radiant brightness, and, blazing through the dread of night, illuminate by love and reason, for those in darkness, faith's delight. Topics: Doubt; God Presence of; Light; Renewal; Truth; The Word of God Used With Tune: SPIRITUS VITRE

How Shall I Sing That Majesty

Author: John Mason (1645?-1694) Meter: D Appears in 37 hymnals Scripture: 1 Kings 19:1-18 Lyrics: 1 How shall I sing that majesty which angels do admire? Let dust in dust and silence lie; sing, sing, ye heavenly choir! Thousands of thousands stand around thy throne, O God most high; ten thousand times ten thousand sound thy praise; but who am I? 2 Thy brightness unto them appears, whilst I thy footsteps trace; a sound of God comes to my ears, but they behold thy face. They sing because thou art their sun; Lord, send a beam on me; for where heaven is but once begun, there hallelujahs be. 3 Enlighten with faith's light my heart, inflame it with love's fire; then shall I sing and bear a part with that celestial choir. I shall, I fear, be dark and cold, with all my fire and light; yet when thou dost accept their gold, Lord, treasure up my mite. 4 How great a being Lord, is thine, which doth all beings keep! Thy knowledge is the only line to sound so vast a deep: thou art a sea without a shore, a sun without a sphere; thy time is now and evermore, thy place is everywhere.
