Representative Text

1 When life is full of toil and care,
When on our way the shadows fall,
That we may trust, and journey on,
God speaketh to us all:

Refrain:
Be still, be still,
Be still and know that I am God;
Be still, be still,
Be still and know that I am God.

2 When heavy is the given cross,
When strength is ready to depart,
That we may trust, and murmur not,
God whispers to the heart: [Refrain]

3 When rugged is the sea of life,
When storms abide and billows roll,
That we may trust, and never fear,
God whispers to the soul: [Refrain]

4 In all the days that are to come,
In all the griefs that may befall,
That we may trust his guiding hand,
God speaketh to us all: [Refrain]
