Be Still

Be still, and let the spirit speak

Author: Antonio L. Haskell
Tune: BE STILL (Haskell)
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Be still, and let the spirit speak,
Forego the worldly strain;
Your closet enter, shut the door,
Let silence in you reign.

The center of your being find,
From it turn not away;
Wait on your Lord, give ear to Him
In all He has to say.

2 The great I AM in you will speak,
And you will wisdom find,
With seers who in the ages past,
The hearing ear inclined.

The spirit unto you will give
The knowledge that you need;
And daily you will grow in grace,
If you'll the Spirit heed.
