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 
 
“Still, My Soul Be Still” is featured on the Getty’s latest album, Awaken the Dawn
