Be Still and Know That Thou Art God

Still Waters

"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)

1.   Let me, Thou sovereign Lord of all,
      Low at Thy footstool humbly fall;
      And while I feel affliction's rod,
      Be still and know that Thou art God.

2.   Let me not murmur nor repine
      Under these trying strokes of Thine;
      But while I walk the mournful road
      Be still and know that Thou art God.

3.   When and wherever Thou shall smite,
      Teach me to own Thy sovereign right;
      And underneath the heaviest load,
      Be still and know that Thou are God.

4.   Still let this truth support my mind,
      Thou canst not err or be unkind;
      And thus approve Thy chastening rod,
      And know Thou art my Father, God!

5.   When this afflicted soul shall rise
      To ceaseless joys above the skies,
      I shall, as ransomed by Thy blood,
      Forever sing, "Thou art my God!"
