Be Still and Know That I Am God

Print Share


    1. In times of deepest trial,
    I plead to find relief.
    On bended knee I seek thee
    And pray I may find peace.
    And in that darkest hour comes the solace I have sought.
    I hear the faintest whisper:
    “Be still, and know that I am God.”
    2. I raise my eyes to heaven,
    I feel thy presence near
    And know that one who loves me
    Has heard my searching prayer.
    Thy gentle voice reminds me life’s battles must be fought.
    I hear thee now more clearly:
    “Be still, and know that I am God.”
    3. I rise with sweet assurance;
    My pain to thee is known.
    Thou knowest of my suff’ring;
    I do not walk alone.
    Thy perfect love has healed me, because I have been taught
    By one who bore all sorrows:
    “Be still, and know that I am God.”
