Be Still, My Soul, Before the Lord

Another beautiful hymn written
 about prayer -sang at a recent retreat.
Lutheran Service Book- Hymn 771

Be still, my soul, before the Lord
For God is always near.
Before your mind is moved to pray,
God listens and will hear.

You need not multiply your words
nor pray with practiced art.
Beyond all speech, God understands
the hunger of your heart.

Wait, then, in quiet confidence,
Your anxious thoughts at rest.
God knows your needs before you ask
and works for what is best.

Be still, my soul, before the Lord;
On God in patience wait.
God's love, unseen surrounds your life;
God's help will not be late.
