"Be Still" Notes

Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
Psalms 46:10

It had been a busy couple of weeks. This song was written in the car driving to Boulder Colorado on business while I worked for Apple Computer. I had been working a lot of late nights trying to get ready for the launch of the Newton. After all that I was now headed to an Apple lab in Boulder to see if we could make one more demo before the product launch in Boston. I took some poetic license. I don't drink coffee and I don't always make it up by a quarter to eight.

"Be Still" Lyrics

  
I get up every morning at a quarter to eight    
Drink my coffee, read the paper, going to be late    
Fight the traffic, work all day and then hurry home    
Eat some dinner, watch TV and answer the phone    
    
Chorus    
But God says:    
Be still... and know that I am God    
Be still... I want to talk to you    
Be still... and hear the still small voice in your heart    
    
I've got my laptop, and beeper and my cellular phone    
You can always reach me but I'm never at home    
Briefcase and my ticket and my suitcase is packed    
Trip to Denver, stop in Boston, then I'll be back    
    
Chorus    
    
I learned to say my prayers at the age of three    
God bless mommy, God bless daddy, God bless me    
Thanks for breakfast, thanks for dinner, see you at noon    
When I'm less busy then we'll talk it's sure to be soon    
    
Chorus
