Be Still, My Soul - Katharina von Schlegel Music: Jean Sibelius

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 heav'nly Friend Thro' 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 wind still know His voice who ruled them while he dwelt below.

Be still, my soul: the hour is hast' ning on When we shall be forevr with the Lord, When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone. Sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored.

Be still, my soul: when changes and tears are past, All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.
