Serenity Sunday ~ Be Still My Soul







"Be Still, My Soul" by Catharina von Schlegel

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.


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.


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.

Be still, my soul, though 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 sorrows and thy fears. Be still, my soul; thy Jesus can repay; From His own fulness all He takes away.

Sometimes it's very hard for me to "be still" but I'm grateful to know He is always there.

This is the time of year I need to hear that most because it is so hard to just be still!
