Be Still and Know That I Am God

Thoughtfully

1. In times of deepest trial,

I plead to find relief.

On bended knee I seek thee

And pray I may find peace.

And in that darkest hour comes the solace I have sought.

I hear the faintest whisper:

“Be still, and know that I am God.”

2. I raise my eyes to heaven,

I feel thy presence near

And know that one who loves me

Has heard my searching prayer.

Thy gentle voice reminds me life’s battles must be fought.

I hear thee now more clearly:

“Be still, and know that I am God.”

3. I rise with sweet assurance;

My pain to thee is known.

Thou knowest of my suff’ring;

I do not walk alone.

Thy perfect love has healed me, because I have been taught

By one who bore all sorrows:

“Be still, and know that I am God.”
