I am a child of royal birth. My Father is King of Heaven and earth. My spirit was born in the courts on high. A child beloved, a princess am I. I was nurtured there; I lived by His side In a home where patience and love abide. My mother was there in that glorious place Blessing her children with queenly grace.
I grew to the stature that spirits grow. I gained the knowledge I needed to know. I was taught the truth and I knew the plan That God and the Christ laid out for man. I was there when the stars of morning sang. I mingled my voice when the heavens rang. I was there to rejoice, to praise and applaud The shouts of joy from the sons of God.
I waited my turn and I came to earth Through the wonderful channel of human birth. Then the curtains were closed and the past was gone; On the future too, the curtains were drawn. I live on the earth, and God willed it so With freedom to choose the way I should go. I must search for the truth, I must serve and obey; I must walk by my faith or fall by the way.
Some day I'll go back; I will answer the call; I'll return with my record to the Father of all. The books will be opened and so will my heart. There will be rejoicing if I've done my part. My Father, the King, with His infinite love Will welcome me back to the mansions above. The curtains will part and eternity In its light and glory will open to me.
Abbrev: Internet Title: Internet Page: Be Still My Soul Note: 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.
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 blessèd we shall meet at last. Text:
