    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.”
