Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord’s coming.    James 5:7


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 every change,

He faithful will remain.

Be still, my soul:

thy best, thy heavenly Friend

Through 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:

when dearest friends depart,

And all is darkened

in the vale of tears,

Then shalt thou better know

His love, His heart,

Who comes to soothe

thy sorrow and thy fears.

Be still, my soul:

thy Jesus can repay

From His own fullness

all He takes away.

4. Be still, my soul:

the hour is hastening 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.

5. Be still, my soul:

begin the song of praise

On earth, believing,

to thy Lord on high;

Acknowledge Him

in all thy works and ways,

So shall He view

thee with a well-pleased eye.

Be still, my soul:

the Sun of life divine

Through passing clouds

shall but more brightly shine.

Katharina von Schlegel, 1752
