Inspiring Lyrics -- "Be Still, My Soul"



puppyfootPuppyfoot on 08/22/2008

trivia quiz "Be Still, My Soul" is a hymn of encouragement for anyone going through dark times. The tune used for this hymn, "Finlandia," was written in 1899 by Jean Sibelius. The words were written in 1752 by Katharina von Schlegel. In 1855, they were translated into English. This quiz contains questions from two of the verses.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE: I realize that many hymns have different versions of lyrics because they have been revised over the years. If you feel that any of the "wrong" answers on this quiz are actually right and can send me information verifying this, I will gladly consider changing the answers. Thanks for your help.

Beautiful! I love this music by Sibelius, but I never knew the words of the hymn.
