Be Still

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (2007-2011)

Though the Galilee is raging, mists of darkness cloud thine eyes,

Even more than many sparrows, thy thoughts are known to mine.

Though many voices beckon to thee to leave the iron rod,

The still small voice entreats thee, “Be still, and know that I am God.”

 

My power is manifested in each tender loving face.

I have sent thee from my presence, as witness of my grace.

From the tiny baby’s finger to the shouts of those abroad,

Canst thou hear me in the whisper, “Be still, and know that I am God.”

 

In my house are many mansions built for those who can endure

Through the triumphs and the trials, whose hearts remaineth pure.

I sent my Son to show thee the pathway thou must trod.

In Gethsemane and always, “Be still, and know that I am God.”
