This video provides the lyrics to the hymnal "Haven of Rest," written by Henry Lake Gilmour, translated into the Navajo language. The translator of this song is unknown. The music is by the late Millie Begay, from Wheatfields, AZ. The literal English translation is written below each Navajo word to help learn the words and meaning of the song. Enjoy! I apologize... I realize that this song had a wrong word placed in. The word "shik'ideílk'o̜ł " has no meaning. Rather, it should be "shik'idiilko̜'," which means, "waves splashed over me." Sorry about that error & enjoy!
