81. It Is My Lord

1 Above the tempest of the seas,
A voice of sweet command I hear;
The waves obey the word of peace,—
It is my Lord to me so dear.

Refrain:
It is my Lord,
It is my Lord,
His tender, loving voice I hear,
It is my Lord,
It is my Lord,
To me so dear, to me so dear.

2 When friends forsake, and foes assail,
I feel the sacred presence near,
Of One, who cannot, will not fail,—
It is my Lord to me so dear. [Refrain]

3 When bowed by some great sorrow deep,
A tender hand wipes ev’ry tear,
And faithful watch with me doth keep,—
It is my Lord to me so dear. [Refrain]

4 When darkest clouds have passed away,
The heavens shine serene and clear,
And songs of gladness fill the day,—
It is my Lord to me so dear. [Refrain]
