Be Still, My Soul

  1. Be still, my soul: the Lord is on your side;
    bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
    leave to your God to order and provide;
    in ev’ry change he faithful will remain.
    Be still my soul: your best, your heav’nly Friend
    through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
  2. Be still, my soul: your God will undertake
    to guide the future as he has the past.
    Your hope, your 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.
  3. Be still, my soul: when dearest friends depart,
    and all is darkened in the vale of tears,
    then shall you better know his love, his heart,
    who comes to soothe your sorrow and your fears.
    Be still, my soul: your Jesus can repay
    from his own fullness all he takes away.
  4. 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.
