When On The Wild Tumultuous Sea

When on the wild tumultuous sea
The weary soul is tossed,
“Lord, save!” let thy petition be,
Ere thy frail bark is lost.

Peace, be still, peace, be still;
The winds and the waters obey Thy will;
Peace, be still, peace, be still;
O speak Thy peace to me.

What though the waves of deep despair
Encompass thee today?
“Lord, save!” still be thy earnest prayer;
His voice the winds obey. [Refrain]

How sweet and holy is the calm,
When to the troubled soul
His tender accents, “Peace, be still,”
Across the waters roll! [Refrain]
