Be still, my heart! these anxious cares

Be still, my heart! these anxious cares
To thee are burdens, thorns and snares;
They cast dishonor on the Lord,
And contradict His gracious word.
Brought safely by His hand thus far,
Why wilt thou now give place to fear?
How canst thou want if He provide,
Or lose thy way with such a Guide?
When first before His mercy-seat
Thou didst to Him thine all commit;
He gave thee warrant from that hour
To trust His wisdom, love, and power.
Did ever trouble yet befall,
And He refuse to hear thy call?
And has He not His promise passed,
That thou shalt overcome at last?
He who has helped me hitherto
Will help me all my journey through,
And give me daily cause to raise
New Ebenezers to His praise.
Though rough and thorny be the road,
It leads thee on, apace, to God;
Then count thy present trials small,
For God will make amends for all.

What a precious assurance! My heart is so comforted and I have hope that My Lord is here in the mist of all my painful situations, trials, lost, sorrow, and all this human life of sorrows. The joy, peace, and assurance is my wonderful Savior.

Spurgeon's quote of v. 5 is what led me to this. Had never heard the hymn before. Stormy trials, come what may - He is eternal and His strength will never fail. Maranatha - come Lord Jesus, come.

Truly assuring. It makes me strong even through trials and challenges. It reminds me I'm a little child in God's hands, totally protected.

This hymn is a great reminder to hold on to the faithfulness of God when the situation around us seems contrary. Yes, He is there. Yes, He does hear...
