Coffee with Wings Feb#4

Yesterday in church our worship leader alluded to a grief she had suffered in recent months. She chose this hymn so lead us in worship.

When my grandson died this also was a song that inspired me and assured me God was with me. Being a Christian is not a bed of roses. Pain and grief are part of the journey.

  1. Be still, my soul: The Lord is on thy side;
    With patience bear thy cross of grief or pain.
    Leave to thy God to order and provide;
    In ev’ry change he faithful will remain.
    Be still, my soul: Thy best, thy heav’nly Friend
    Thru thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
    2. Be still, my 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 bright at last.
    Be still, my soul: The waves and winds still know
    His voice who ruled them while he dwelt below.
    3. Be still, my soul: The hour is hast’ning on
    When we shall be forever with the Lord,
    When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,
    Sorrow 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.
    Text: Katharina von Schlegel, b. 1697;
    trans. by Jane Borthwick, 1813-1897
