Representative Text

1 Storm upon the waters, terrors on the deep,
While the winds and waves wildly beat,
Thru the driving tempest, Jesus lies asleep,
Till disciples kneel at His feet.

“Master, oh hear us, stormy tempests blow,
Save, or we perish, in the waves below,
Calm o’er the waters that obey His will,
Comes the sweet voice of Jesus “Peace, be still.”

2 Tho’ the deepest sorrow, sin or cruel care,
Come to fill our hearts with their woe,
Call upon the Saviour, never feel despair,
At His word all trouble must go. [Refrain]

3 Trust Him for salvation, for His Word is sure,
Where He stays all tumult must cease,
Ever thru the ages shall His will endure,
Giving calm and safety and peace. [Refrain]
