Representative Text

1 Peter on the troubled sea,
Heedless of the tempest shock,
Walks the waters steadily,
As upon the granite rock.

Though the howling tempest raves,
Jesus, mighty Jesus, saves;
While I walk the troubled waves,
Jesus, mighty Jesus saves.

2 Walking through the storm and strife,
Wailing winds and billows roar,
Blessed promises of life
Bear me up forevermore. [Refrain]

3 Walking thus and all is well,
With my eyes on help divine,—
Yea, in death my lips shall swell
Songs triumphant and sublime. [Refrain]
