    Verse 1
    Impatient heart, be still! what though He tarries long?
    What though the triumph song is still delayed?
    Thou hast His promise sure, and that is all secure;
    Be not afraid! Be not afraid!

    Chorus
    Be still! ... Be still!
    Impatient heart ... be still!

    Verse 2
    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; and yet, my soul, it may;
    I cannot tell, I cannot tell.

    Chorus
    Be still! ... Be still!
    My eager heart ... be still!

    Verse 3
    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.

    Chorus
    Be still! ... be still!
    My anxious heart ... be still!
