The Fray – Be Still lyrics

Be still and know that I'm with you
Be still and know that I am here
Be still and know that I'm with you
Be still, be still and know

When darkness comes upon you
And covers you with fear and shame
Be still and know that I'm with you
And I will say your name

If terror falls upon your bed
And Sleep no longer comes
Remember all the words I said
Be still, be still and know

And when you go through the valley
And the shadow comes down from the hill
If morning never comes to be
Be still, be still, be still

If you forget the way to go
And lose where you came from
If no one is standing beside you
Be still and know I am

Be still and know that I'm with you
Be still and know I am

    The lyrics of this song reminds me that I am not alone. God is always with me and not be afraid, even in the darkest moments of my life. He will comfort me by calling my name. He is letting me know. He is always at my side, no matter if morning comes or not. I know I am not without. His saving grace and love. He will not ever forsake me, keep my faith in. Him and take heed in knowing there is no need to worry. He is with me no matter what may come. God is great. God is love. Be still and take comfort in. Him always.

    Yes, it can be derived that this song is about the comfort of god presence; that we are never truely alone. But I believe that it is about finding comfort in a person.
    "be still and know that i'm with you. "
    The person saying this could be a lover, a true friend, a soulmate, god or even a parent.
    The song to me is about knowing that you have someone who will always be there for you. A true bond of love.
