Beside the Still Waters is a brief organ prelude of a lyrical character. This music is based upon the folk-prayer, "Beside the Still Waters," inspired by the 23rd Psalm:

Beside the still waters,
I will lay my body down,
with breezes floating o'er me,
and a garland for my crown.
I will see the Light Eternal.
I will breathe the open air.
Beside the still waters,
O Lord, please lead me there.
