BE STILL and let my love surround you,
Be calm now that my grace has found you.
Be joyful now that i have set you free.
Be trusting and follow me faithfully.
Remember all I have done for you.
Remember that my love is true.
Remember who I made you to be,
Remember that I love you and the best is yet to be.
When life gets hard and you want to give up,
When the road gets long and the path gets tough,
When you’re scared and alone and you want to hide,
When the whole world’s against you, I’ll be by your side.
Be still and let my love wash over you.
Be still and watch all I can do.
Be still and believe in me.
Be still and I will set you free.
