Be Still My Soul...
As we approach enter exam period and many return to University to submit dissertations and sit fiendishly difficult exams and test we are all painfully aware or our own weaknesses. We all struggle with feeling overwhelmed by life. But what is the answer? Surely to look at Christ more than we look at ourselves and our troubles. As the moderators of Walking Worthy we have been especially blessed by a hymn that we have found helpful in helping us to focus on Christ in the midst of troubles. We have shared it below in the hope that some of you will benefit from it as we have.
"Be still my soul, the Lord is on thy side,
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain,
Leave to thy God to order and provide,
In every change He faithful will remain,
Be still m soul, thy best, thy Heavenly Friend,
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end,
Be still me soul, thy God doth undertake,
To guide the future as He has the past,
Thy hope, thy confidence, let nothing shake,
All now mysterious shall be brought at last.
Be still my soul, the waves and winds still know,
His voice who ruled them while he dwelt below.
Be still my soul; the hour is hastening on,
When we shall be forever with the Lord,
When disappointment, grief and fear are gone.
Sorrows forgot, love's purest joys restored,
Be still my soul, when change and tears are past,
All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.
Be still, my soul: begin the song of praise,
On earth, believing, to Thy Lord on high;
Acknowledge Him in all thy words and ways,
So shall He view thee with a well pleased eye.
Be still, my soul: the Sun of life divineThrough passing clouds shall but more brightly shine."
