Piano by Joel: the Fresh Piano Blog and Podcast

Today's old hymn, requested by a listener via e-mail, is Be Still My Soul, to the 19th century tune composed by Jean Sibelius (1865-1957.) The original German lyrics were penned by Katharina von Schlegel (1813-1897), but here is a portion of the English translation by Jane Borthwick: Be still, my soul, the Lord is on thy side. Bear patiently the 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 heavenly Friend Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end. Enjoy the piece.
