Now playing...

Peace! Be Still!


music

Master, the tempest is raging! The billows are tossing high!
The sky is o'ershadowed 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 threat'ning a grave in the angry deep?

The winds and the waves shall obey [his] will, Peace be still! Peace be still!
Whether the wrath of the storm-tossed sea,
Or [devils], 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 [his] will;
Peace, be still! Peace, be still! They all shall sweetly obey [his] will: Peace, peace be still!

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!

The winds and the waves shall obey [his] will, Peace be still! Peace be still!
Whether the wrath of the storm-tossed sea,
Or [devils], 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 [his] will;
Peace, be still! Peace, be still! They all shall sweetly obey [his] will: Peace, peace be still!

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 harbor, and rest on the blissful shore.

The winds and the waves shall obey [his] will, Peace be still! Peace be still!
Whether the wrath of the storm-tossed sea,
Or [devils], 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 [his] will;
Peace, be still! Peace, be still! They all shall sweetly obey [his] will: Peace, peace be still!
