By Vivian May Edwards
Be still, God's never failed you, never once has He turned His face,
Never once has He abandoned, but has always shown you grace.
Even when you were so troubled that you could not even sleep
You could not pray or even speak, all you could do was weep
Your past is the sweetest story of God's faithfulness so true
Of how strong and safe His tower, of His gentleness with you.
Remember how He saved you, through each storm He was your light.
Remember how He gave your soul His love songs in the night.
Remember when He hid you 'neath the shelter of His wing.
Remember how He held you tight, when comfort He would bring.
Remember that you're in His heart, forever there to stay.
Be still and know that He is God, He cares for you each day.
Remember, don't forget, God's kind deliverance in the past.
Do you really think He'd leave you now to fall apart at last?
Your life's the sweetest anthem that you could ever raise
Of how awesome God's provision, how to Him belongs all praise.
Wait, be still, just rest in Him, who carried you that day,
Praise Him for His perfect plan that came without delay.
Trust, have faith, remember, how God's mercies brought you through.
Thank Him and remember, He'll deliver this time too.
