1. When waves of trouble round me swell,

I hear a voice I know full well,
"'Tis I; be not afraid."

2. When black the threat'ning skies appear,

Those accents tranquilize each fear,
"'Tis I; be not afraid."

3. There is a gulf that must be crossed;
Saviour, be near to aid!
Whisper, when my frail bark is tossed,
"'Tis I; be not afraid."
