1 When our hearts are sad and weary,
When our paths seem lone and dreary,
Sweet the voice can make us cheery,
Peace, be still.
When we meet with tribulation,
Chafing under sore temptation,
Bless the Lord for consolation,
Peace, be still.

In all thy ways, oh, seek His guiding,
Amid all troubles, still confiding,
In His grace and power abiding,
Peace, be still, peace, be still.

2 Do we grieve at man’s behavior?
Mourn we all in vain our labor,
Precious accents of our Savior,
Peace, be still.
Can the Lord forget us ever?
Can His love from us e’er sever?
Ours may fail, but His, ah, never!
Peace, be still. [Refrain]

3 Have you heard His voice within you?
Does the joy it brings continue?
From all evil may it win you,
Peace, be still.
Soon will drop our heavy crosses,
Recompense for all our losses,
Anchored safe where storm ne’er tosses,
Peace, be still. [Refrain]
