1. Impatient heart, be still!

    What tho’ He tarries long?

    What tho’ the triumph song is still delay’d?

    Thou hast His promise sure,

    And that is all secure;

    Be not afraid! Be not afraid!

    Be still! … be still!

    Impatient heart … be still!

  1. My eager heart, be still

    Thy Lord will surely come,

    And take thee to His home,

    With Him to dwell;

    It may not be today;

    I cannot tell, I cannot tell.

    Be still!… be still!

    My eager heart … be still!

  2. My anxious heart, be still!

    Watch, work, and pray, and then

    It will not matter when

    Thy Lord shall come;

    At midnight, or at noon;

    He cannot come too soon

    To take thee home, To take thee home.

    Be still! … be still!

    My anxious heart … be still!

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
