BE STILL MY SOUL

Jane L. Borthwick, Jean Sibelius

Be still my soul, the Lord is on your side

Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain

Leave to your God to order and provide

In every change He faithful will remain

Be still my soul, your Best, your heavenly Friend

Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end

 

Be still my soul, your God will undertake

To guide the future as He has the past

Your hope, your 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 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
