He quiets the storm

Representative Text

1 The tempest was raging on blue Galilee,
And high rose the waves of the Palestine sea,
Yet Jesus was sleeping as sweet as a child,
Not heeding the winds or the waters so wild.

Chorus:
The billows of sea or of sorrow,
Sweetly obey His will,
And stormy seas of trial,
List to His "Peace, be still!"

2 He woke from His slumbers and spake to the storm,
And, lo! on the waters there fell a great calm;
The waves of the deep seemed to whisper, "'Tis He,"
As safely the vessel passed over the sea. [Chorus]

3 O safe is the vessel when Jesus is there,
And sure is the voyage, if stormy or fair;
There's naught that can harm us when He whispers "Peace;"
He speaks to the winds and the wild tempests cease. [Chorus]
