Be Still and Know That I Am God


Thoughtfully
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.”
