The Still Small Voice

By George H. Brimhall

The still, small voice to the Prophet said,
Speak, speak, speak,
Proclaim the power of God o’er head,
Speak, speak, speak.

The still, small voice to the poet said,
Sing, sing, sing,
Before thy voice despair hath fled,
Sing, sing, sing.

The still, small voice to the scientist said,
Seek, seek, seek,
Bring forth the truth from its curtained bed,
Seek, seek, seek.

The still, small voice to the artist said,
Make, make, make,
Let comfort’s car be onward sped,
Make, make, make.

The still, small voice to the teacher said,
Teach, teach, teach,
By children’s needs let man be led,
Teach, teach, teach.

The still small voice to the statesman said,
Plan, plan, plan,
For freedom’s ever forward tread,
Plan, plan, plan.

The still, small voice to the toiler said,
Rise, rise, rise,
Let labor proudly hold up its head,
Rise, rise, rise.

The still, small voice to the wealthy said,
Help, help, help,
That all may earn, be clothed and fed,
Help, help, help.

The still, small voice to the nations said,
Peace, peace, peace,
Let gods of war no more be fed,
Peace, peace, peace.

The still, small voice to the peace world said,
Grow, grow, grow,
O, tree of joy with branches spread,
Grow, grow, grow.

(1930)

  1. I learned not long ago that George H. Brimhall was a cousin of mine. A first cousin 4x removed. I suppose it goes to show that you never know who you’re related to unless you go looking.

  2. Next time you pass through the Brimhall Building take a look at the wall sculpture that is in the front lobby. It was commissioned in 1976, by and at the death of John Edward Johnson, one of Brimhall’s students and senior class president in 1914.
