Be Still My Soul

"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 my soul: thy best, thy heavenly Friend
Thru' thorny ways leads to a joyful end."

Katharina von Schlegel
translated by Jane L. Borthwick

  1. Love the tranquility of the photo and those uplifting, hopeful words, Maureen. Thanks for sharing this and for visiting me at Doorkeeper. Blessings!

  2. These words spoke life to me today! Thank you, friend! ~ jen

  3. Have loved that hymn for years. Sung so seldom in our day and age. [Doesn't mean I can't have it buried in my heart and sing it LOUDLY when I'm out and about walking and worshiping and praising Him.]

  4. Lovely photo and verse! So peaceful. Thanks for your sweet comment on mine. :)
