Song background:

This song was written as a comfort to those struggling with difficult trials. The text came in a sudden moment of inspiration as an answer to a heartfelt prayer for a loved one in need. The various scriptural references culminate in the counsel to simply "Be still and know that I am God". As we struggle through our life experiences and often wonder why we are being tested and tried, many times we need to just be still and trust in a loving Heavenly Father who knows all, sees all, and loves us infinitely.

"Be Still" received an Award of Merit as an anthem in the 2007 LDS Church Music Submissions.

Lyrics: Though the Galilee is raging, <br/>Mists of darkness cloud thine eyes, <br/>Even more than many sparrows <br/>Thy thoughts are known to mine. <br/>Though many voices beckon thee <br/>To leave the iron rod, <br/>The still small voice entreats thee, <br/>Be still and know that I am God. <br/> <br/>My pow'r is manifested <br/>In each tender loving face <br/>I have sent thee from my presence <br/>As witness of my grace. <br/>From the tiny baby's finger <br/>To the shouts of those abroad, <br/>Canst thou hear me in the whisper? <br/>Be still, and know that I am God. <br/> <br/>In my house are many mansions <br/>Built for those who can endure <br/>Through the triumphs and the trials, <br/>Whose hearts remaineth pure. <br/>I sent my Son to show thee <br/>The pathway thou must trod. <br/>In Gethsemane and always, <br/>Be still, and know that I am God.
