When the storms of life are overhead,
filling you with a sense of dread,
like ocean waves that across you roll,
feeling like you have lost control,
hopelessness can overwhelm you
with uncertainty about what to do.
Remember the One wind and sea obey
can drive your doubt and fear away.
When facing problems in your life,
look beyond the pain and strife,
lift your eyes up from the storm
to find a place so safe and warm,
set your mind on things above
to discover peace and love.
Remember that Jesus calmed the sea,
this peace He offers to you and me.
