O MASTER SAVE




Long ago, at the eventide,
Tossed a vessel on the sea,
Storm-winds shrieked and the waves dashed wild,
Tempest-driven o'er Galilee.
Low on a pillow the Saviour slept.
Unconscious of wind and wave,-
Pleading, the sailors beside him knelt,
Crying, oh, Master, save,

Save, save, Master, save,
Souls out on life's storm-tossed sea;
Save, or we perish, oh, Master, save,
Thou King of wild Galilee.


O'er the deep rang his "peace, be still,"
When the winds and waves obey,
Skies no longer above them frown.
As they smile with setting ray;
Peacefully calm, now the treacherous sea
Is hushed at his sweet command,
Never his voice can be heard in vain
On storm-tossed sea or land.

Save, save, Master, save,
Souls out on life's storm-tossed sea;
Save, or we perish, oh, Master, save,
Thou King of wild Galilee.


Still he speaks to the storm-tossed souls,
Weary, toiling o'er life's sea ;
Braving billows that o'er them rolls,
"Peace, be still," I'll comfort thee.
"Peacefully still," and the heart grows light.
Storm-clouds have all passed away,
Scattered the gloom of the weary night
To dawn of happy day.

Save, save, Master, save,
Souls out on life's storm-tossed sea;
Save, or we perish, oh, Master, save,
Thou King of wild Galilee.
