Prayer for Sunday

I love this song:

Be Still My Soul

Be still, my soul: The Lord is on thy side;
With patience bear thy cross of grief or pain.
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In ev'ry change he faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heav'nly Friend
Thru 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:   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.
Text:  Katharine von Schlegel,+
Music:  Jean Sibelius, copyright, 1933

My heart goes out to my friend, Liberty Cameron, who's mother passed away.  May the Lord bless her with strength to weather the duties she is now called to take care of and the future days of sorrow.  I love you, Liberty.
