Watercolor Wednesday | Be Still and Know.

Rock Mill Park, from this morning's run
When we were in Beaufort last month, Charlie gave me a CD of the Sea Island Chamber Singers' March 2015 concert. He directs this choir and he's justifiably proud of the work they do. But I'm pretty sure he gave me the CD because he has two organ solos in the middle; one of which is a Bach Fantasia and Fugue that is a shared favorite. And while those two pieces are fantastic, the song I've got playing on repeat is a brand new one, Be Still and Know, composed by Michael John Trotta.

I could hear it playing in my head this morning when I ventured out onto the greenway for a run...my first there since last fall. It was a glorious sunny morning. It's hard to believe that the last time I saw this pond, it was frozen over!

Be Still and Know

Even if the mountains were to fall into the sea, 
Waters were to surge upon the earth, 
Hope still lives in a most holy place, 
A place that shall not move for I am here. 

Be still and know, 
Be still and know, 
Know that I am your God. 
Be Still and know, 
And you’ll find rest, 
A refuge for your soul. 

When nations roar and kingdoms fall still you shall not fear, 
My strength and hope will keep you on your way. 
Wars shall cease and the shields melt with fire, 
Listen then for you will hear my voice.

Be still and know, 
Be still and know, 
Know that I am your God. 
Be Still and know, 
And you’ll find rest, 
A refuge for your soul. 

Keep your mind on things above and not on earthly things;
You're hidden with me in the safest place.
Your old self has died and is risen again;
Your death shall be what brings you to new life.

Be still and know, 
Be still and know, 
Know that I am your God. 
Be Still and know, 
And you’ll find rest, 
A refuge for your soul. 

~Psalm 46, adapted by Michael John Trotta

There's a nice recording of the song here. It works really well with the volume turned WAY up!

The song is lovely, both the lyrics and the music! I think I'll send the link to my choir director!

The song and the waterlogue are both beautiful-a good reminder to "be still".
