     35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. 36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. 37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. 38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? 39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? 41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?(KJV)

1. 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. 

2. 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. 

3. Be still, my soul, though 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 sorrows and thy fears. 
Be still, my soul; thy Jesus can repay 
From His own fulness all He takes away. 

4. Be still, my soul; the hour is hastening 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.
