Catharina von Schlegel, 1752; Welsh words, German text
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
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
2. Be still, my soul; thy God doth undertake
4. Be still, my soul, though dearest friends depart|
And all is darkened in the vale of tears;
Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart,
Who comes to soothe thy sorrows and thy fears.
Be still, my soul; thy Jesus can repay
From His own fulness all He takes away.
5. Be still, my soul; the hour is hastening on
