Be Still My Soul

Be Still, My Soul

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 heav'nly Friend,
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake,
To guide the future as He has the past.
Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;
All now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know,
His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.

Be still, my soul: the hour is hast'ning on,
When we shall be forever with the Lord.
When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone.
Sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored.
Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past,
All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.

Words by Katharina von Schlegel, 1752
