David Archuleta~"Be Still My Soul"


**David Archuleta (Post-American Idol) singing for a school of troubled-youth.
(pause side music)

"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 heav'nly Friend
Thru thorny ways leads to a joyful end."

~I could listen to this all day! His voice is so amazing & to hear him sing one of my favorite hymns " Be Still My Soul" is a treat. Things have been hard for me lately in various ways and as I listen to this song I am given much peace. It reminds me of the scripture in the Doctrine & Convenants when the Lord spoke to Joseph Smith:

"....peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine affliction shall be but a moment; And then if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high; ...Thy friends do stand by thee, and they shall hail thee again with warm hearts and friendly hands."
D&C 121:7-9

~I definitely am blessed with friends and loved-ones who stand by me through harder times.
Enjoy the Music!
