Status in the Stillness

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble... Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth" (Psalm 46:1,10).  "Jesus... is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.  For such an High Priest became us, Who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens" (Hebrews 7:22-26).   

In time of trouble and commotion
The status of our soul is well,
Though mountains fall into the ocean
With crashing waves and floods that swell. 

Though kingdoms rage, they are but dust,
And all their boasting shall be halted. 
In stillness we have learned to trust
And know our God shall be exalted. 

In Jesus Christ our Lord we boast,
Who intercedes for us above,
Who saves us to the uttermost,
And shelters us with boundless love. 

In stillness, Lord, we understand
The status of our perfect peace,
Assured our times are in Your hand
And that Your kingdom shall increase.
