Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

616. Be Still

1 Oh, be still, thou soul of mine,
Thou art not forsaken;
Though the pow’rs of sin may rage,
Thou shalt be unshaken.
He who gave His life for thee,
Thus permits that thou should be—
For thy good, as thou shalt see—
Tempted for a season.

2 Be courageous, firm, and true,
When life’s battle’s waging;
Oh, be still, my soul, and rest,
When the tempest’s raging.
He who doth our sorrows share,
In His love and tender care
Trials more than thou can bear
Will not let thee suffer.

3 Why should thou so fearful be,
At the tempter’s roaring?
Simply trust in God alone,
Satan’s wrath ignoring.
See God’s tenderness, and prove
With the sainted hosts above,
His unfailing, wondrous love,
Ever for thee caring.

4 Yes, dear Lord, I will be still,
I will trust Thee ever;
I’ll submit to all Thy will,
Cling to Thee forever.
Lord, Thou knowest what is best,
Confident in this I’ll rest,
Till I dwell with all the blest,
And with Thee in heaven.
