Fierce [raged] was the storm of wind. H. W. Beadon. [Stilling the Sea.] Contributed to the Parish Hymn Book, in 1863, No. 24, and continued in the enlarged edition, 1875, No. 24, in 7 stanzas of 4 lines. When included in the Sarum Hymnal, 1868, No. 74, it was attributed to the late W. Beadon Heathcote in error. This was corrected in the Hymnary, 1870-2 (where the hymn is given with slight alterations as, "Fierce raged the storm of wind"), and in the Notes to Church Hymns, fol. edition, 1881. In the latter the original text is given, with the exception of the doxology. The hymn is based on the Gospel for the 3rd Sunday after the Epiphany.
