1 Out on the ocean the mad billows toss,
Louder and louder the angry waves roar,
Watch o’er the seamen, O Father in Heav’n,
Bring them in safety to loved ones once more.
Thou canst still the tempest,
With a single word.
Winds and waves obey Thee,
Thou Almighty God!
2 Many a woman is kneeling in pray’r,
Pleading Thy care for some storm-beaten one.
Hear them, O Father, and comfort their heats,
May they in trust, cry, “Thy will, Lord, be done!” [Refrain]
3 God of the ocean and God of the land,
Still Thou the tempests that roar in each heart.
Bring us, O Father, the sunshine of peace,
And from Thy love may we never depart! [Refrain]Source: Uplifted Voices: a 20th century hymn book for sunday-schools and devotional meetings #39
