Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Peace, be still

Representative Text

1 There’s a song my heart is singing,
Thro’ my soul the sweet tones thrill,
To my life true joy ‘tis bringing,
In the sweet words “peace be still.”

O my heart is softly singing!
Unto him my soul is clinging,
Sweetest peace his words are bringing,
When he whispers, “peace be still.”

2 Sailing over life’s rough ocean,
Raging winds the canvass fill,
But above the storm’s commotion,
Comes the whisper, “peace be still.” [Refrain]

3 So my life is filled with gladness,
And my heart bows to his will,
Lighter trial; pain and sadness,
When he whispers, “peace be still.” [Refrain]

4 When I cross death’s surging river,
And its waves my heart would chill,
With new life my soul shall quiver,
As he whispers, “peace be still.” [Refrain]
