At the Matthew Smith show last week, he mentioned the power and flexibility of hymns as forms of worship, prayer, confession, peace, etc. His version of the hymn/prayer “Calmer of My Troubled Heart (Hallelujah)” has not left my playlist since (words come from a poem by Charles Wesley). Lyrics here:
Calmer of my troubled heart,
Bid my unbelief depart.
Speak, and all my sorrows cease,
Speak, and all my soul is peace.
Comfort me when e’er I mourn
with the hope of Thy return.
And til I Thy glory see,
Help me believe in Thee.
