Archuleta, David - Be Still, My Soul Lyrics




Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side.
With patience bear thy cross of grief or pain.
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change, He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heavenly Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake
To guide the future, as He has the past.
Thy hope, thy 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.

Be still, my soul: the hour is hastening 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.

  1. Victor ochieng'

    Thank you I needed to hear this.

  2. xXSoldier08YangXx

    I love this song! The way David sings this is absolutely beautiful. For some reason, I love this stage performance rather than the album version. 🇺🇸😊🌹💓🌹

  3. Nancy Hobson

    Beautiful voice, singing including accompaniment

  4. Janet Hu

    Beautiful

  11. R.B. Gideon

    My favorite too

  12. Christin Moffitt

    This is one hymn that is beautiful as a flute solo as well. While I could never play in the same hemisphere as David can sing, it lends itself to the beauty and drama of these incredible words of faith, and I was honored to perform it on a number of occasions in our ward. It is so very humbling... so very moving, so very full of the love of Christ...

  13. J San

    Beautiful job 🙏

  14. Gage Oliver

    He has a beautiful voice. Shame he seemed to vanish after Idol

  25. 단하나의

    I'm not interested in religion.
    But I love this video forever!!
    🤩🤩 Thanks 💖💛💖💛💖💛💖💛💖

  26. Marciel Alves

    Jesus is coming back
    Read the Christian Holy Bible and Practice
    Accept the Lord Jesus Christ who has not yet accepted.... He loves you very much...
    He wants everyone to repent of their sins and receive eternal life...
    Through Jesus we have eternal life but without Jesus is eternal condemnation

  27. Joshua Bbash

    He is so humble. I love that about David

  28. Flávio H. Lima

    I love this song. Thank you very much.

  29. JohnMc1945

    It does one well to understand why Horatio Stafford wrote that beautiful hymn, after finding out that he lost four of his very young children due to the ship that the children and his wife were on board had collided with another vessel and sank. Amazingly his wife survived. As he sailed over to join his wife in England, the Captain called him up to advise him that by their reckoning they were right over the spot where the ship had sunk and 4 of his infant children were. As he was in his cabin on board, he penned this famous hymn. A sad story.

  30. mara malaque

    Thanks for this wonderful interpretation. We have in Brazil a portuguese translation for this song (Rest, my soul), but I do prefer the title in English. "Be Still, my Soul" is an extremely relevant message to this days.

  31. Jocelynmaree Norris

    This hymn is one of my favourites ❤️ he sang it so beautifully.

  32. rikardotsamsiyu

    Am I the only one who thinks this sounds like Mulan's "reflection?"

  33. camerrill

    So beautiful, David! I sang this hymn in choir many years ago and it came flooding back into my heart. Thank you!

  34. The Harmonists

    Did you think to pray?

  35. Junior Seiuli

    Be still my soul the Lord is on thy side
    Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain
    Leave to thy God to order and provide
    In every change He faithful will remain
    Be still my soul thy best, thy heavenly friend
    Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end
    Be still my soul when dearest friends depart
    And all is darkened in the vale of tears
    Then shalt thou better know His love His heart
    Who comes to soothe thy sorrow and thy fears
    Be still my soul the waves and winds shall know
    His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below
    Be still my soul the hour is hastening 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

  36. Scott Talbot

    I love this beautiful music, the magnificent words, and David Archuleta's awesome God given voice.

  37. Alex Bethea

    It has nothing to do with being Mormon. It's about the spirit of the Lord

  38. Fred Bechtel, Jr.

    David is so humble and talented. I definitely wish he would do a cd of hymns.

  39. Abbigayle Mathews

    Thanks for always being true. You bring love and peace to so many. Heavenly Father needs and loves us all!!

  43. Linda Moulton

    Still touches my soul with his songs! This was special! This was exquisite!

  44. Gary Ingersoll

    so beautiful...

  45. KMA Associates

    Yep, I'm back again for a much appreciated shot-in-a-weary-arm bit of music
    that's only slightly better than my memories of farm fresh butter and strawberry jam on hot-out-of-the-wood-oven multigrain bread in grandma's kitchen.

  46. gabriela esparza

    Hi is an angel in earth!!!

  47. Westy Marisya

    Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side.
    Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.
    Leave to thy God to order and provide;
    In every change, He faithful will remain.
    Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heavenly Friend
    Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
    Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake
    To guide the future, as He has the past.
    Thy hope, thy 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.
    Be still, my soul: the hour is hastening 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.

  48. cincofieldsable

    Fills my Soul to overflowing🌸, thank you!

  49. Gener Rillorta

    i been watching this rendition of david so many times but the feelings that everytime i am hearing his voice while my eyes were closed feels like in heaven. So comforting and makes my spirit moves away!

  50. perdykool

    I adore his laugh, makes me smile and feel soo light hearted. And his voice is soothing.

  51. Raiha Kingi

    Wowww...how beautiful

  52. The Shortfellows - speak softly and play the piano

    Why are you apologizing?:)-

  53. Alejandro Barquero Jr.

    I realy love his voice since from the american idol.. good job.. how i wish that i could also have voice like you

  54. Ellen Obrock

    Wow. I have this memorized now. It was sung at my mom's funeral September 2018. This song has been a comfort to me.
    I learned about the origin of the lyrics. The author's family was lost at sea. He went to where they perished and the words came to him. They give comfort to those in mourning. Peace.

  55. SharkShampoo

    I'm a happy exmormon but I still love this song. Music is beyond any theology

  56. Ruth Ann Hewitt

    I love our Savior Jesus Christ. I love this song. I am LDS.

  57. Carolyn Robinson

    Such a beautiful voice!!!

  58. Phil Rawlinson

    What a joy it is to hear David singing this beautiful hymn. It's my favourite anyway, but he has made it even more special for me today !!

  59. Jeanette mullen

    still love to hear this song over and over

  60. Kingeeh F

    This is so beautiful and so comforting 😇 one of my favourite song in the Hymn book. God bless you David 💛

  61. Sebastien 1980

    We latter-day Saints trust in our Savior Jesus Christ. Because he loves us and understands us individually.

  62. TheGreatlytouched

    David's voice always makes me feel peaceful inside. No matter what type of music he sings.

  63. StripeRich

    Thank you Jan Sibelius, for this sublime melody. And to Kathrina Von Schlegel for lyrics to match.

  64. Jeddah Secretaria

    This song always brings me to tears...

  65. Bitch Whore

    Proud member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saint!

  66. Benjamin Torrie

    What an exceptional soul. This song reminds me of when my Heavenly Father led me through my deepest, most harrowing depths of hell. He had lost my trust for a little while, but He gently (and only as He could) told me why I needed to suffer and sacrifice so completely during that period of my life. I am and will be forever grateful for His gentle, guiding hand. ❤️

  67. C Krause

    Thank you so much for providing this beautiful music to warm my heart on the Sabbath days

  68. Jaime Brisbon

    Beautiful ❤️❤️

  69. BaggioItal

    He's such a cutie!

  70. Jimmy Stahlman

    Where is the 3rd verse that mentions the name above all names - Jesus?

  71. Carmen Cevallos

    WONDERFUL DAVID ARCHULETA👏🎖😇🙏❤️

  72. Rebecca Larson

    I'm a big fan of David Archuleta and this song.

  73. Spencer Call

    Beautiful vocal artist and an amazing Saint

  74. Johnny LeRose

    Such a great gift, is he and his voice. An Angel, is all I can usually think of, when watching and listening to Him. Hoping He is well, presently.

  75. James Cazier

    I wish so badly I was able to sing tenor, instead of being a baritone grouped into the tenors in choir, it’s just so incredible to listen to David sing so high but so beautiful

  76. Karen Oliva

    What a wonderful song by an American Idol who almost won!! He had an incredible back-story too!! Very talented and humble!!

  77. Ellen Obrock

    This hymn was sung at my mom's funeral in September 2018. The lyrics point to her own conversation with her soul who was so eager to be with The Lord. Then, she, in spirit, sang it to us at her funeral. She knew we were all grieving and these words of comfort and counsel helped us. Today I am trying to commit these words to memory. Try it yourself. One verse ar a time, just sing them to yourself as you go about your day.

  78. - Tony

    I'm a fan of David's for life. This man sings from deep within his soul. The way he sings this song is perfect. I love listening to him sing.

  79. Jeremy Carrier

    @davidarcheleta when I need the lord I listen to this song. But even this song can’t stop me from feeling forsaken by the church:( what do I do lord

    ce collie

    I'm sorry you feel that way and for whatever happened to led you to that feeling. I wish I could say something that would ease your hurt. Please hang on.

  80. Rheannon F

    Glorious!

  81. - Tony

    Absolutely beautiful

  82. Kevin Brennan

    Wonderful. Simply wonderful.

  83. FireWatcher1519

    I’m a Mormon. I LOVE David Archeleta and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. both are so..awesome and peaceful...

  84. Gerald Shea

    A pity to present as a common piece the remarkable composition by Sibelius.

    ce collie

    What are you talking about? That was beautiful. Simple doesn't mean common.

  85. John O'Connor

    You are a brave man top stand and sing to this audience, love you man for doing it.

  86. DMG Hands

    Oh David God Bless You. THANK YOU.

  87. Flower

    Beautiful. Moved my very soul.

  88. Jhames Albert Liwanag

    the VOICE!
    the HUMILITY

    #LDS

  89. teceyS3

    I love that he was nervous in front of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir ;) ♡

  90. John Somerville

    Awesome, Just Awesome!

  91. lidia barrera

    Tears .😢😢

  92. Adley Lolin

    what arrangement is this? is there sheet music for it?

    sophiamcl

    Yes there is. You can purchase it here: http://www.kurtbestor.com/shop-sheet-music1/be-still-my-soul

  93. soraida tabla

    i love his song so very much that i could cry!!

  94. Sherry Goodman

    Thank you. I needed some serious comfort and peace of mind. The comforter reveals himself in many ways. One of my favourite methods of seeking the Holy Spirit is through music.
    I've been in a very dark place for so long, and this was just such a spiritual boost, that I've remembered something that I've known all along, and yet forgot to apply to my life.
    Surround myself with light, and the darkness will be held at bay.

    I need more of THIS in my life.
    Such a beautiful voice!
    It makes me so happy to know that David knows that his talents are to be shared, and, when used for good, the blessings are bountiful.
    You deserve TONS of blessings, sir. I thank you for sharing your amazing talent with me, as well as the rest of the world.

  95. KBB

    So touching and powerful beauty🙏😓.

  96. germans1

    The waves and winds still know. One of my favourite lines in the song. It reminds of these days when a lot are losing faith or even don't believe. The elements still know his voice.

  97. Seppo Nieminen

    As said many times, this is Finlandia by Jean Sibelius. Listen to the whole composition. maybe you'll understand a bit of our strugle against the Russian oppression.
