Words & Recording of music provided below

TTS Friday - Kathrina von Schlegel
00:00 / 00:00

1 Be still, my soul; the Lord is on your side;

Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;

Leave to your God to order and provide;

In ev'ry change He faithful will remain.

Be still, my soul; your best, your heav'nly Friend

Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.


2 Be still, my soul; your God will undertake

To guide the future as He has the past.

Your hope, your confidence, let nothing shake;

All now mysterious shall be bright at last.

Be still, my soul; the waves and winds still know

His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.


3 Be still, my soul, though dearest friends depart

And all is darkened in the vale of tears;

Then you will better know His love, His heart,

Who comes to soothe your sorrows and your fears.

Be still, my soul; your Jesus can repay

From His own fulness all He takes away.


4 Be still, my soul; the hour is hast'ning on

When we shall be forever with the Lord,

When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,

Sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored.

Be still, my soul; when change and tears are past,

All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.


Hymn: My Faith Has Found A Resting Place

Cue from story: "...between following Me and heeding fear?"

TTS Saturday - E. E. Hewitt
00:00 / 00:00

1 My faith has found a resting place,

not in device nor creed;

I trust the Ever-living One,

His wounds for me shall plead.



I need no other argument,

I need no other plea,

it is enough that Jesus died,

and that He died for me.


2 Enough for me that Jesus saves,

this ends my fear and doubt;

a sinful soul I come to Him,

He’ll never cast me out. [Refrain]


3 My heart is leaning on the Word,

the living Word of God,

salvation by my Savior’s name,

salvation through His blood. [Refrain]


4 My great Physician heals the sick,

the lost He came to save;

for me His precious blood He shed,

for me His life He gave. [Refrain]


Hymn: I Love You, Lord

Cue from story: "...You are the Son of God!"

Words & Recording of music provided below

TTS Saturday - Laurie Klein
00:00 / 00:00

I love you Lord

And I lift my voice

To worship you

O my soul, rejoice!

Take joy, my King

In what you hear

May it be a sweet, sweet sound

In Your Ear.
