        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.”
