Be Still My soul the Lord is on they side
Stand calm within the storm of grief and pain
Trust in thy God to order and provide
Through every change his faithful light remains
Be still my soul the restful peace within
Through trying times leads to a joyful land
Be still my soul the wind and waves shall know
The voice who ruled them while he dwelt below
Torment and doubt have slipped into the past
All dark and mysteries shall shine at last
His burning sun shall melt the ice of fear
Lift up your heart his soothing voice to hear
Be still my soul when light you cannot see
That trembling skies speak to the fear in thee
The face of God illuminates the night
Unending peace and trust in perfect light
Be still my soul when tears fall from above
You are divine eternally in love
You are divine eternally in love

    General CommentThis sounds like a really God-dy song but I'm not religious and i just think its so pretty... it was in Alias when Vaughn is at the CIA funeral and he hugs the kid... thats where i heard it. lisbeth scott has a lovely voice, so heartfelt. and good for funerals i think, if one is religious

    General CommentThat's my favourite hymn! Years ago I took skydiving lessons. I have a fear of height, so this was the extreme! All I was thinking during the training was that I must have been mad to be doing this! The more I felt that way, the more I felt sick! When I finally decided to trust in the instructor and let go of my fear, I started getting stronger inside. It was a great experience! When I hear this song, it reminds me of my experience with skydiving. We trust in God that he loves us enough, and that he will fix things or let us see things in a new light.
