Still, My Soul Be Still

They’ve done it again! The great hymn writing trio of Keith and Kristyn Getty and Stuart Townend have written another beautiful one for Lent this year. The hymn is called Still, My Soul Be Still.
While they are promoting it for Lent and our focus on our suffering King Jesus this year, the hymn could be used during many times of the church year. The Scripture-based lyrics are very comforting. The accompaniment is quiet, yet reassuring.

Here is a video of the Irish Choir and Orchestra performing the hymn. The lyrics are below. We can only pray that God continues to bless such talented writers and musicians! What a blessing to the Church!

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 temptations flaming arrows  
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

  1. I Am so glad to see that you guys are using some contemporary music. Do you use a band accompaniment with at least piano and guitar for this style of music?

  2. We do contemporary worship in the sense that we use some modern things. Really our worship is more “blended,” combining new and old alike in our proclamation of Jesus.

    We have used a variety of instrumentation from violins to flute to trumpet to congas and bongos to acoustic guitar.

    At our church we only have a grand piano and don’t have an organ. But we have never used any amplified instruments before.

    So for this song we would obviously use piano and perhaps use guitar with it.
