Be Still, My Soul
About the Song
Words: Katharina von Schlegel (translated by Jane Borthwick) Music: Jean Sibelius, from “Finlandia” Arranged by Sally DeFord The vocal-only score provided contains the harmonies used in the recording. I’m labeling it “backup vocals” because really, it’s just that. An SATB has been on my to-do list for ages… it might happen. Maybe.

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 every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: Thy best, thy heav’nly Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
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.
Be still my soul: The hour is hastening 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.
