23 And when he got into the boat, his disciples followed him. 24 And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep. 25 And they went and woke him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing.” 26 And he said to them, “Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?” Then he rose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. 27 And the men marveled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?” (Matthew 8:23-27)

In the sea of life
There will be times
When the waves rage
And the boat rocks.

No matter how fierce the storms,
Or how much the wind blows,
Fix your gaze on Jesus,
The author and perfect of your faith.

Only He is the source of divine peace.
Because of Him there is no need to fear.
His grace is a shield and sure defense
Against life’s circumstances and trials.

All we have to do is rest in His unfailing love.
When we look back on His death in our place
Then we can assuredly look ahead
Aware of His desire to do us good.
