Representative Text

1 Maker of all things, mighty Lord!

They work Thy sovereign will;
Thy voice is heard upon the deep,
And all its waves are still.

3 When dangers threat in every form,
And death itself is near;
O God, amid the raging storm,
We're safe beneath Thy care.

4 With cheerful hope on Thee we stay,
To rescue from the grave;
Thou, whom the elements obey,
In Christ art near to save.
