"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 ..."

Lyrics by Kathrina von Schlegel (b.1697)
