Hymn 261 - O God, Whose Smile Is in the Sky

Instrumental Accompaniments

Vocal Accompaniments


O God, whose smile is in the sky,

Whose path is in the sea,

Once more from earth’s tumultuous strife

We gladly turn to Thee.

Now all the myriad sounds of earth

In solemn stillness die;

While wind and wave unite to chant

Their anthems to the sky.

We come as those with toil far spent

Who crave Thy rest and peace,

And from the care and fret of life

Would find in Thee release.

O Father, soothe all troubled thoughts,

Dispel all idle fear,

Purge Thou each heart of secret sin,

And banish ev’ry care.

Until, as shine upon the sea,

The silent stars above,

There shines upon our trusting souls

The light of Thine own love.
