Hushed Was The Evening Hymn

USH’D was the evening hymn,
 The temple courts were dark;
 The lamp was burning dim
Before the sacred ark;
When suddenly a Voice Divine
Rang through the silence of the shrine.

The old man, meek and mild,
The priest of Israel, slept;
His watch the Temple child,
The little Levite kept;
And what from Eli’s sense was seal’d,
The LORD to Hannah’s son reveal’d.

Oh! give me Samuel’s ear
The open ear, O LORD,
Alive and quick to hear
Each whisper of Thy word;
Like him to answer at Thy call,
And to obey Thee first of all.

Oh! Give me Samuel’s heart,
A lowly heart, that waits
Where in Thy house Thou art,
Or watches at Thy gates,
By day and night, a heart that still
Moves at the breathing of Thy will.

Oh! Give me Samuel’s mind,
A sweet unmurmuring faith,
Obedient and resign’d
To Thee in life and death;
That I may read with child-like eyes
Truths that are hidden from the wise.


And the truths are revealed by God in the signs and the meaningful coincidences which He has orchestrated in our lives and in world events over nearly a quarter of a century.  And on occasion there is the Voice too, just not very often in churches, I have found.

I can remember singing this hymn only once in a church service.  It was at a spiritualist church at Musselburgh, to the east of Edinburgh in 1987 or early in 1988.  Musselburgh is where the River North Esk finally reaches the sea or more specifically, the Firth of Forth.  And in that too there is a strange connection, for the North Esk flows past Rosslyn Chapel on its journey from the Pentland Hills.

I could not remember the exact rhyme from The Da Vinci Code so I went to look it up .......more

This is the Midi file for this tune

The first update of this Voice of God site since 2006 was done on 11th September 2012, to mark the 11th anniversary of 9/11.  That was when I revised the site after it had been down since 6th August 2012, because of the Delete All instruction.  On 9/11/12, The Voice told me it was time to republish VoG with the latest information.   I added the message from the spirit of Osama bin Laden which came to me on 5th September, triggered by some words uttered by the wife of his 'namesake' .......  and an interview with one of the 'mission heroes' promoting his new book.  But then there were so many computer software malfunctions.  The site was finally re-published at  1.44pm  6th October, 2012.
