Full Text

1 A storm was out on fair Judea’s hills,
The clouds were dark upon the troubled sea,
The toiling fishermen with iron wills,
Strove with the wind-swept waves of Galilee.

Yet One was watching, though they knew it not,
And One was waiting that they could not see;
They were not darker in their lonely lot,
They were not blinder than at times are we.

2 Oh! blessed feet that pressed the sandy beach,
Oh! blessed hands, so willing still to save,
No toiling one can drift beyond thy reach,
No trusting one will sink beneath the wave. [Refrain]

3 The Angry billows knew their Master first,
And bore his weight upon their foamy crest;
Is Nature keener, or is man the worst,
That they were slow to greet the Heavenly Guest? [Refrain]

4 No ship can sink when he is at the helm,
No craft can founder on life’s stormy tide,
No sea engulf or angry wave o’erwhelm,
When he who forms the waves is at our side. [Refrain]
