Representative Text

1 O Thou, whose very word is pow’r,
Great Master of the mighty sea;
Grip Thou my will within Thine own,
And rule Thou me.

2 As Thou didst calm the winds and waves
That wrestled wild on Galilee;
Rebuke the passions that would slay,
And calm Thou me.

3 The arm of man availeth not
To snatch me from th’engulfing sea;
Stretch forth Thy strong and willing hand,
And save Thou me.
