Bishop Gregory Palmer

Delegates lay hands on Bishop Palmer

Delegates from East and West Ohio prayed over Bishop Palmer before his Episcopal Address.

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.

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.
