883PeaceJohn E. West (1863-1929)

1Fierce was the wild billow
Dark was the night;
Oars labored heavily:
Foam glimmered white;
Trembled the mariners;
Peril was high:
Then said the God of God,
“Peace: it is I.”
2Ridge of the mountain wave,
Lower thy crest:
Wail of the tempest wind,
Be thou at rest.
Sorrow can never be,
Darkness must fly,
Where saith the Light of Light,
“Peace: it is I.”
3Jesus, Deliverer,
Come Thou to me:
Soothe Thou my voyaging
Over life’s sea;
Thou, when the storm of death
Roars sweeping by,
Whisper, O Truth of Truth,
“Peace, it is I.” Amen.
