1. Master, the tempest is raging!

The billows are tossing high!

The sky is o’eer-shadowed with blackness,

No shelter or help is nigh:

“Carest Thou not that we perish?”

How canst Thou lie asleep,

When each moment so madly is threatening

A grave in the angry deep?

The winds and the waves shall obey My will,

Peace, be still”

Whether the wrath of the storm-tossed sea,

Or demons, or men, or whatever it be,

No water can swallow the ship where lies

The Master of ocean and earth and skies;

They all shall sweetly obey My will;

Peace be still! Peace, be still!

They all shall sweetly obey My will:

Peace, peace, be still!

2. Master, with anguish of spirit

I bow in my grief today;

The depths of my sad heart are troubled;

O waken and save, I pray!

Torrents of sin and of anguish

Sweep o’er my sinking soul!

And I perish! I perish, dear Master;

O hasten, and take control!

3. Master, the terror is over;

The elements sweetly rest;

Earth’s sun in the calm lake is mirrored,

And heaven’s within my breast.

Linger, O blessed redeemer,

Leave me alone no more;

And with joy I shall make the blest harbour,

And rest on the blissful shore.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
