Ideas for use

Intersperse the verses with prayer but keep the spoken words to a minimum in order to make space for the “still small voice of calm”. See this example by Andrew Murphy. You may also find this approach suitable for use with My song is love unknown (StF 277).

Also see Hymns as Prayer.
