Master the Tempest is Raging!

Mark 4:37-40 (NRSV) – A great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. 38 But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” 39 He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. 40 He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?” 

When the lashing waves of fear and doubt 
Threaten to topple your helpless little boat 
Reach out to Him who rules the sea 
At whose command - Peace! Be still! 
Waves are hushed, raging seas, calmed
When you find yourself helpless 
Faced with a sea of sinking realities 
With an army of challenges in hot pursuit 
Trust Him who makes a way 
Where there seems to be no way
When what you have is pitiably little 
As against the multitude of your needs 
Offer to Him your five loaves and two fish 
Knowing that He can bless and multiple 
Satisfying the needs and hunger of many
For He the One faithful and true 
Yes, He the same God remains 
Yesterday, today and forever 
So, friends as you ride tempestuous seas 
Your Lord and Master truly, is He?
