Fierce raged the tempest
o’er the deep,
Watch did Thine
anxious servants keep
But Thou wast wrapped
in guileless sleep,
Calm and still.


“Save, Lord, we perish,”
was their cry,
“O save us in our agony!”
Thy word above
the storm rose high,
“Peace, be still.”


The wild winds hushed;
the angry deep
Sank, like a little child, to sleep;
The sullen billows ceased to leap,
At Thy will.


So, when our life is clouded o’er,
And storm winds drift us
from the shore,
Say, lest we sink to rise no more,
“Peace, be still.”
