1 When the waves in terror rolled,
All in helpless graves t’enfold,
Then the Lord of Life drew nigh,
Saying calmly, "It is I;
It is I, be not afraid,
I whose might creation made."

2 When the world in hatred strong,
Rages on thee oft and long,
Let the Lord of Life draw nigh,
Speaking calmly, "It is I;
It is I, be not afraid,
I who render timely aid."

3 When our natures, prone to sin,
Roll in passions fierce within,
Lord of Life, do Thou draw nigh,
Speak the solace—"It is I;
It is I, be not afraid,
I who help you when dismayed."
