Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Mark, when tempestuous winds arise

Mark, when tempestuous winds arise

Author: Thomas Scott
Published in 17 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Mark! when tempestuous winds arise,
The wild confusion and uproar;
All ocean mixing with the skies,
And wrecks are dash'd upon the shore.

2 Not less confusion racks the mind,
By its own fierce ideas tots;
Calm reason is to rage resign'd,
And in the whirl of passion lost.

3 O self-tormenting child of pride,
Anger, bred up in hate and strife!
Ten thousand ill, by thee supply'd,
Mingle the cup of bitter life.

4 Happy the meek, whose gentle breast,
Clear as the summer's ev'ning ray,
Calm as the regions of the blest,
Enjoys on earth celestial day!

5 No friendships broke their bosoms sting,
No jars their peaceful tent invade;
Secure beneath th' almighty wing,
And foes to none, of none afraid.

6 Spirit of grace, all meek and mild!
Inspire our hearts, our souls possess;
Repel each passion rude and wild,
And bless us as we aim to bless.
