Be Still, My Soul

RETURN TO SLIDE SHOW
although a sea of mottled, earthly bound hues crash all around it, the central cry, “Be Still, My Soul,” remains safely enveloped in a calm, anchored core. The twists and turns of the typography are inspired by the melody of Jean Sibelius’ “Finlandia,” which, despite its twisting melody and occasional dissonance, weaves this hymn’s words into a comforting quilt of a reminder, through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Katharina von Schlegel, 1752
Translated by Jane Borthwick, 1855
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 heav’nly 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: when dearest friends depart,
and all is darkened in the vale of tears,
then shalt thou better know his love, his heart,
who comes to soothe thy sorrow and thy fears.
Be still, my soul: thy Jesus can repay
from his own fullness all he takes away.
Be still, my soul: the hour is hast’ning 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 blessed we shall meet at last.
“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.” —James 5:7
