Peace Be Still

Peace Be Still

And when they had sent away the multitude,
They took the Master into a ship.
And there were also with him other little ships.
But then there arose a great storm
And the waves beat down
And the wind rose up
And the sea filled the ship
Till the waters reigned

And the Master asleep on a pillow lay
While all of those around him lost hope
So they began to waken him and say to him
Oh Master why do you not care
That we perish out here
In a raging storm
And the waters rise
And the ship goes down
Aaah

And he arose
And rebuked the wind
And said unto the sea
Peace be still
Peace be still

And the wind ceased
And there was a great calm
And he said unto them
Why are ye so fearful?
How is it that ye have no faith?

And so they esteemed him exceedingly,
and said to one another “Oh my
What manner of man is this who works such miracles
That even the wind and the sea obey him?”

For he arose
And rebuked the wind
And said unto the sea
Peace be still
Peace be still
