I am trying to find the name of this Hymn that was played today on NPR... It had the line /words above in it.
Blessed quietness... On the starry sea. Can you help me find the hymn?

Are you liking for Blessed Quietness?
If so, I found to sites with a difference in lyrics
Here's a recording with sheet music

Hi songinmyheart, Thank for all the research you did.
Everyone here appreciate all your help. :-)
Just decided, I would post the lyrics on this request,
to be easier on everyone and if someone else was looking for them, too.
“I will ask the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter.” John 14:16
Joys are flowing like a river,
Since the Comforter has come;
He abides with us forever,
Makes the trusting heart His home.
Blessèd quietness, holy quietness,
What assurance in my soul!
On the stormy sea, He speaks peace to me,
How the billows cease to roll!
Bringing life and health and gladness,
All around this heav’nly Guest,
Banished unbelief and sadness,
Changed our weariness to rest.
Like the rain that falls from Heaven,
Like the sunlight from the sky,
So the Holy Ghost is given,
Coming on us from on high.
See, a fruitful field is growing,
Blessèd fruit of righteousness;
And the streams of life are flowing
In the lonely wilderness.
What a wonderful salvation,
Where we always see His face!
What a perfect habitation,
What a quiet resting place!
