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

The Fray*


The phone rings at 4:00 a.m.

A tearful voice describes the terror that has fallen upon them. Their sleep has been stolen over and over again…

Your heart grows heavy as they describe their pain.

Through the grogginess of the morning, you know the first words they need to hear are, “You are not alone. I am here.”


Written as a lullaby…Be Still (Youtube)


🎵
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 colors 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

Listen here, and
Be still and know I am
