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 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.
