    Be Still, My Soul

    Peacefully

    1. Be still, my soul: The Lord is on thy side;

    With patience bear thy cross of grief or pain.

    Leave to thy God to order and provide;

    In ev’ry change he faithful will remain.

    Be still, my soul: Thy best, thy heav’nly Friend

    Thru thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

    2. 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.

    3. 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.
