“Be still, and know that I am God.”  Ps. 46. 10

S. Medley                               L.M.

1
Let me, thou sovereign Lord of all,
Low at thy footstool humbly fall;
And while I feel affliction’s rod,
Be still and know that thou art God.

2
Let me not murmur nor repine,
Under these trying strokes of thine;
But while I walk the mournful road
Be still and know that thou art God.

3
When and wherever thou shalt smite;
Teach me to own thy sovereign right;
And underneath the heaviest load,
Be still and know that thou art God.

4
Still let this truth support my mind,
Thou canst not err nor be unkind;
And thus approve thy chastening rod,
And know thou art my Father, God!

5
When this afflicted soul shall rise
To ceaseless joys above the skies,
I shall, as ransomed by thy blood,
For ever sing, “Thou art my God!”
