be still

Come, my love, my life, for this wind
is fierce and cold, and I need you
by my side
O my morning star, how this night
is dark and this ship tempest-tossed
be my light
But still, my love, sleep on, and rest
your peaceful head through this storm, here
on my breast
Sleep, my Lord, my love, I'll not fear
that my small ship will come to harm
with you here
in my arms
