All who sail the sea of faith
Find out before too long
How quickly blue skies can grow dark
And gentle winds grow strong.
Suddenly fear is like white water
Pounding on the soul,
Still we sail on knowing
That our Lord is in control.Sometimes He calms the storm
With a whispered "Peace, be still."
He can settle any sea
But it doesn't mean He will.
Sometimes He holds us close
And lets the wind and waves go wild,
Sometimes He calms the storm
And other times He calms His child.
That we pass through in life,
And though we're shaken
We cannot be pulled apart from Christ.
No matter how the driving rain beats down
On those who hold to faith,
A heart of trust will always
Be a quiet peaceful place.
