Hymn/Song Information

Fierce was the billow wild dark was the




Fierce was the billow wild,
dark was the night;
Oars labored heavily,
foam glimmered white.
Trembled the mariners; peril was nigh:
Then said the God of God, “Peace: it is I.”


Ridge of the mountain wave,
lower thy crest;
Wail of the tempest wind, be thou at rest.
Sorrow can never be, darkness must fly,
Where saith the Light of light,
“Peace: it is I.”


Jesus, Deliverer, near to us be;
Soothe thou my voyaging over life’s sea;
Thou, when the storm
of death roars, sweeping by,
Whisper, O Truth of truth, “Peace: it is I.”


---Alternative verses---


Jesus, Deliverer,
Come Thou to me ;
Soothe Thou my voyaging
Over life s sea ;
Thou, when the storm of death
Roars sweeping by,
Whisper, O Truth of Truth,
"Peace ! it is I."
