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! they best thy heav'nly Friend
Thro' 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 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.

Text by Katharina Von Schlegel; translated by Jane L. Borthwick

I'll post a real entry soon. I have been working on a few things but it's been too busy to tie up the loose ends. In the meantime, you can enjoy this great hymn. It has been a great encouragement for me today.

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. .Isaiah 40:29.
