Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side;
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
Leave to thy God order and provide;
In every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heavenly friend.
Through thorny ways to a joyful end.
Be still, my soul: thy God doth
To guide the future as He has the past.
Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;
All now mysterious shall be bright
Be still my soul: the waves and winds still know
His voice who ruled them while He dwelth below.
Be still, my soul: the hour is
When we shall be forever with the Lord,
When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,
Sorrow forgot, loves purest joys restored.
Be still, my soul: when change and tears are part,
All safe and blessed we shall meet
