Be Still


Relax – really trust God for life’s trials –

That’s what I really ought to do,

But inclination is to try my wiles

And work real hard to “see it through.”


When I am thrust into a vast unknown

That challenges my ev’ry thought,

Where anxious fears are ever overblown,

I am so thankful I’m blood-bought!


When I rest confidently in Your care

I’m at peace ‘cause You’ve gone before.

Of Your certain strength I am made aware

As I read Your deeds by the score.


Jesus, help me rest in Your perfect love

In the difficult days ahead.

Please send me your peace through the Holy Dove.

By Him and Your Word I am fed.


When I ask for bread, will You give me stones?

Oh, I’ve known Your supply before.

Help me really trust while in flesh and bones

And know Your true peace to the core.
