"Be Still, My Soul

"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
 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."

From the hymn: "Be Still, My Soul"
Katharina vonSchlegel

Praying that no matter what the circumstances, your soul will be stilled by the knowledge that He who calmed the waves and wind is with you.

Linking to my dear friends Sandy and Deidra:
