Still, My Soul Be Still

“Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”

Psalm 46:10

 

This hymn by Keith and Kristyn Getty is one I find myself singing often. Such a beautiful message for troubled hearts… 

Still, My Soul Be Still 
Still my soul be still 
And do not fear 
Though winds of change may rage tomorrow
 God is at your side 
No longer dread 
The fires of unexpected sorrow  
 
God You are my God 
And I will trust in You and not be shaken 
Lord of peace renew 
A steadfast spirit within me 
To rest in You alone  
 
Still my soul be still 
Do not be moved 
By lesser lights and fleeting shadows 
Hold onto His ways 
With shield of faith 
Against temptations flaming arrows  
 
Still my soul be still 
Do not forsake 
The Truth you learned in the beginning 
Wait upon the Lord 
And hope will rise as stars appear when day is dimming

“By Faith”

By faith we see the hand of God 
In the light of creation’s grand design 
In the lives of those who prove His faithfulness 
Who walk by faith and not by sight  
 
By faith our fathers roamed the earth 
With the power of His promise in their hearts 
Of a holy city built by God’s own hand 
A place where peace and justice reign  
 
We will stand as children of the promise 
We will fix our eyes on Him our soul’s reward 
Till the race is finished and the work is done 
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight  
 
By faith the prophets saw a day 
When the longed-for Messiah would appear 
With the power to break the chains of sin and death 
And rise triumphant from the grave  
 
By faith the church was called to go 
In the power of the Spirit to the lost 
To deliver captives and to preach good news 
In every corner of the earth  
 
We will stand…  
 
By faith this mountain shall be moved 
And the power of the gospel shall prevail 
For we know in Christ all things are possible 
For all who call upon His name  
 
We will stand…
