1 When life is full of toil and care,
When on our way the shadows fall,
That we may trust, and journey on,
God speaketh to us all:

Refrain:
Be still, be still,
Be still and know that I am God;
Be still, be still,
Be still and know that I am God.

2 When heavy is the given cross,
When strength is ready to depart,
That we may trust, and murmur not,
God whispers to the heart: [Refrain]

3 When rugged is the sea of life,
When storms abide and billows roll,
That we may trust, and never fear,
God whispers to the soul: [Refrain]

4 In all the days that are to come,
In all the griefs that may befall,
That we may trust his guiding hand,
God speaketh to us all: [Refrain]

Chicago writer of hymns, religious and romantic poetry, and temperance songs. Edward Albert Barnes was born January 24, 1842. Little is known about his personal history beyond his own accounts of his songwriting process, his relationship with two younger sisters, Lillie and Della, and his religious beliefs.
