Be Still, My Soul

Date recorded: September 27, 2013

Words by: Katharina von Schlegel

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 winds 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.

It is so refreshing to sing along familiar songs; like walking on old familiar paths of ‘holiness’. Thanks for recording these sounds that will live throughout the generations.

Just learned of your website through a mention of it at Faith Village Church of Christ here in Wichita Falls. I love it!! Exactly what I have been looking for. Any thoughts of recording “Going Home” from Anton Dvorak’s New World Symphony? I realize it’s not one of our “old hymns” but the thoughts expressed in it certainly agree with our Christian faith. Keep up the great work!!
