Be Still, My Soul!
1. Be still, my soul; the Lord is on thy side; bear patiently the cross of grief or pain; leave to thy God to order and provide; in every change He faithful will remain. Be still, my soul; thy best, thy heavenly, Friend through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
2. Be still, my soul; thy God doth undertake to guide the future as He hath the past. Thy hope, thy confidence, let nothing shake; all now mysterious shall be bright at last. Be still, my soul; the waves and wind still know His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.
3. Be still, my soul, tho' dearest friends depart and all is darkened in the vale of tears; Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart, who comes to soothe thy sorrows and thy fears. Be still, my soul; thy Jesus can repay from His own fullness all He takes away.
4. Be still, my soul; the hour is hastening on when we shall be forever with the Lord, when disappointment, grief, and fear are gone, sorrow forget, love's purest joys restored. Be still, my soul; when change and tears are past, all safe and blessed we shall meet at last. Amen.
