My contemplation at this hour

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.

Katharina A. Von Schlegel, 1752
