Be still and know He
Know He is holy
Be still and know He is God
We have filled our lives with inventions
That have hurried us nowhere fast
Now we need to turn our attentions
To what will last

Chorus:
Be still and know He
Know He is holy
Be still and know He is God
Love Him more dearly
See Him more clearly
Be still and know He is God

We've been running without a direction
We're afraid to get there late
What we need is strength just to kneel down
And wait

- Chorus -

    Stillness in god means resting in his sovereingty. Sometimes life seems out of control. We don't know why things are happening the way they are. Yet, we can always go to jesus, knowing that we can rest, be still, and trust in his will for our lives.
