Still, My Soul, Be Still

8 years ago, we were living across the ocean on the Big Island of Hawaii. I was expecting our fifth son and was busy trying to keep our four other little boys under control in our rented third floor condo in an upscale beach front resort (Long story how we ended up in such an unlikely housing situation for a growing young family). But anyway there I was surrounded by my boys and retirees and tourists all day while Tom was off at work. Pretty much not a day went by that I didn’t find myself sitting in front of the computer with tears streaming down my face wondering how I was going to manage life with a new baby, while singing along through my sobs to a Youtube video of the Getty hymn, “Still, My Soul, Be Still.”

A month ago my oldest son arranged a version of that same hymn for my Birthday. He finally put his performance up on Youtube and it couldn’t be more timely with all the election madness we’re experiencing today. Be sure to read the lyrics as you listen.

Still, my soul be still
And do not fear
Though winds of change may rage tomorrow
God is at your side
No longer dread
The fires of unexpected sorrow
God, You are my God
And I will trust in You and not be shaken
Lord of peace renew
A steadfast spirit within me
To rest in You alone
Still, my soul be still
Do not be moved
By lesser lights and fleeting shadows
Hold onto His ways
With shield of faith
Against temptation’s flaming arrows
God, You are my God
And I will trust in You and not be shaken
Lord of peace renew
A steadfast spirit within me
To rest in You alone
Still, my soul be still
Do not forsake
The truth you learned in the beginning
Wait upon the Lord
And hope will rise
As stars appear when day is dimming
God, You are my God
And I will trust in You and not be shaken
Lord of peace renew
A steadfast spirit within me
To rest in You alone
