They said, “Master the sea is
“See how the waves dash so high.”
“Soon they’ll come crashing down,”
“And we’ll surely drown.”
Carest Thou not that we die?”
Jesus said, “My fearful disciples,”
“Of little faith now are ye.”
Then, He arose from where He lay,
And they heard Him firmly say,
“Peace, be still,” to the sea!
In my life, the tempest was raging.
It threatened to capsize my soul.
I did not know,
Which way I should go.
I was overwhelmed,
By the sea billow’s roll.
I too heard the voice of the Master!
He said, “Come my child unto Me.”
Then, in spite of stormy weather,
We two, together,
Triumphantly walked on life’s sea!
Now, I no longer fear the raging sea,
Or even the rolling tide!
For come what may,
Day after day,
Jesus walks close by my side!
