Be Still

I’m not sure how much more trouble I can take
I feel that I’m alone about to break
My time is quite filled up
His life is not enough
My wandering mind keeps getting in my way

I cry out to God, “Oh, Lord what can I do?
It seems that I am floundering without you”
Then I hear your voice reply
“Child, look up to the sky.
I am always here and want to talk to you.

Be still and know my peace
Be still and know my joy
Be still and hear my voice
I will speak to you through the noise
Be still and find new hope
Be still and feel my love
Be still and I will guide you
Until you reach your home above

I hear His sweet words and myself
How can I find a place where I can be still
Then I start to realize
That such a place is disguised
Because anywhere He can meet with me

I sit down on the deck in silence
I do all I can be quiet
As the minutes pass by
My thoughts all but die
Until only His voice I hear

Be still and know my peace
Be still and know my joy
Be still and hear my voice
I will speak to you through the noise
Be still and find new hope
Be still and feel my love
Be still and I will guide you
Until you reach your home above
