REST is perhaps my most favourite melody from my childhood. The phrase "speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire, O still, small voice of calm!" stuck with me enough that finally when the internet came along I was able to find the hymn again.
It is easy to sing, and the words are so very appropriate, not only for this penitential period of Lent, but also generally for the stress and busyness of modern life, so I am delighted to share this hymn with you and your congregations.
You can't rush a tune named REST, so I have omitted a couple of verses to keep the duration down to about 3 minutes.
You can listen to this track through SoundCloud.
