Deep Peace of the Running Wave
Dewar remembrance book
Rev Alexander:

"In a moment, the choir will be singing an anthem - a Celtic Blessing, with Hebridean lilt and loveliness to it.

"This will be followed by a reading, from the works of R H Tawney and the background to this will be given by David Whitton, who was the first minister's personal spokesman.

Now, the anthem by the choir:

Deep Peace of the Running Wave

Deep peace of the running wave to you
Deep peace of the flowing air to you
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you
Deep peace of the shining stars to you
Deep peace of the gentle night to you
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
Deep peace of Christ, of Christ, the light of the world to you
Deep peace of Christ to you.
