#290: Be Still My Soul

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

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 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.
