1.
Taking on water and tossed by the waves
Christ’s followers scurried about,
Forgetting the one who comforts and saves,
They wallowed and drowned in their doubt.

2.
Despairing and crying with voices raised
They called to their Master at rest,
But three words He spoke, and all were amazed
As they with calm waters were blessed.

3.
“Wherefore did you doubt?” He said in a voice
As still as the miracle calm.
So everyone has a similar choice-
To trust in the Savior’s sweet balm.

4.
We captain our ship through this mortal sea
Christ stands with us at the wheel.
When gales arise as it surely must be
He knows well the fear that we feel.

5.
But we know that then our ship will not sink
Though hurricanes thunder and blow
Even though God might test us to the brink
With peace, we can be still and know.
