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!
