1.	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 God faithful will remain. 
	Be still, my soul: your best, your heavenly friend 
	through thorny ways leads to a joyful end. 

2.	Be still, my soul: your God will undertake 
	to guide the future, as in ages 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 
	the Christ who ruled them while he dwelt below. 

3.	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 for 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.
