Be Still My Soul

Lyrics by Ka­tha­ri­na A. von Schle­gel, translated by Jane Borthwick
Music by 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 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 wind 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
