This gentle ballad, with a text by Marva Dawn, centers on the theme of entering into worship where we may find stillness in God's peace. The meditative hymn text draws from the 23rd Psalm, with references to the table of the Lord, where all are fed and thirsts are quenched, making it ideal for communion as well as a call and preparation for worship. Part of our Quick Study Chorals series this is an accessible setting that can be realized easily with a minimum of rehearsal.
