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, 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.

Text Information

First Line: Be still, be still, be still
Title: Be Still
Author: Janet McDonald (2014)
Language: English
Publication Date: 2015
Notes: This chant uses Psalm 46:10. It is a slow, repeated chant, intended to be used without needing to look at words. As it is repeated, the words and the repeated long note of the chant will allow people opportunity to experience the stilling of God through them. So, it is best used in a time of preparation for prayer, possibly at the beginning of a meditative style of service.
