Toss’d with rough winds, and faint with fear. Elizabeth Charles, née Rundle. [Consolation in Afflication.] Appeared in her Three Wakings, &c, 1859, p. 190. It was given in an abbreviated form of 6 stanzas of 3 lines, and the refrain, "'Tis I, be not afraid," in the Hymnal Companion, 1870, and again in other collections. The slight change in the text of stanza iii. was made by Mrs. Charles.
