07/27/19 Weekend Grif.Net – Be Still, My Soul

[A song for my =
funeral, and for every day until then]

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 heav’nly Friend =
through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

1.    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.

2.    Be still, my =
soul: when dearest friends depart, and all is darkened in the vale of =
tears,
Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart, Who comes to =
soothe thy sorrow and thy fears.
Be still, my soul: thy Jesus can =
repay from His own fullness all He takes away.

3.    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.

4.    Be still, my =
soul: begin the song of praise on earth, believing, to Thy Lord on =
high;
Acknowledge Him in all thy words and ways, so shall He view =
thee with a well-pleased eye.
Be still, my soul: the Sun of life =
divine through passing clouds shall but more brightly =
shine.
