1 Be still, my soul, for God is near,
The great High Priest is with thee now!
The Lord of Life himself is here,
Before whose face the angels bow.
2 To make thy heart his lowly throne,
Thy Saviour God in love draws nigh;
He gives himself unto his own,
For whom he once came down to die.
3 He pleads before the mercy-seat,
He pleads with God, he pleads for thee;
He gives thee bread from heaven to eat:
His Flesh and Blood in mystery.
4 I come, O Lord, for thou dost call,
To blend my pleading prayer with thine;
To thee I give myself, my all,
And feed on thee, and make thee mine.
