The World Was Like A Stormy Night

The world was like a stormy night,
My heart a troubled sea,
I cried in anguish and affright,
O Jesus, Lord, save me.

He heard my prayer, he calmed the sea,
He sought the depths to rescue me;
And ev’ry day with joy I say,
My Jesus still saves me.

He holds me in a loving clasp
While billows onward roll;
They cannot break that mighty grasp;
His peace is in my soul. [Refrain]

Now all my sins are backward cast,
All hidden in the sea;
His mercy cancels all the past
And keeps me pure and free. [Refrain]

O praise the Lord whose wondrous love
Searched thro’ the depths for me;
And I shall scale the heights above
His glorious face to see. [Refrain]
