53 Master, the Tempest is Raging
H. R. Palmer



Master the tempest is raging! The billows are tossing high; The sky is o'er-shadowed with blackness, No shelter or help is nigh Carest thou not that we perish? How canst thou lie asleep When each moment so madly is threatening A grave in the angry deep? refrain The winds and the waves shall obey thy will, Peace, Be still Be still! Whether the waters can swallow the ship where lies The Master of ocean and earth and skies They all shall sweetly obey thy will, Peace, be still! Peace, be still! They all shall sweetly obey Thy will, Peace, peace, be still!


Master, with anguish of spirit I bow in my grief today; The depths of my sad heart are troubled—Oh, waken and save I pray! Torrents of sin and of anguish Sweep o'er my sinking soul And I perish! I perish! dear Master—Oh, hasten and take control! Refrain


Master, the terror is over, The elements sweetly rest; Earth's sun in the clam lake is mirrored, And heaven's within my breast; Linger, O blessed Redeemer! Leave me alone no more; And with joy I shall make the blest harbor, And rest on the blisful shore. Refrain
