There’s a sea that’s surrounded by towering hills

In the midst of a holy land

Where many a trav’ler has sailed on its waves

And walked on its ancient sands.

Long ago a small crew set sail from its banks

Without knowing what might lay in store

For each of their lives would be altered that day

By the time they returned to the shore.

Suddenly a cold wind came down from the hills

Causing fierce waves that struck them with fear.

The thunder and lightning a midst blackened clouds

Convinced those in the boat death was near.

They awakened the Master and sought for his aid.

He arose and rebuked the wind

The spoke to the sea, saying, “Peace, be still.”

 

And the waters grew calm again.

I may not have the faith to move mountains

Or the power to still raging seas

But I know who to put all my trust in

When I’, tossed on the angry deep.

Though He may not spare me from the lightning

And the storms may rage on through the night

I know in the end that all will be well

For my one sure anchor is Christ

 

Like that boat on the sea I am sometimes tossed

By the storms of this life raging ‘round.

And when dark clouds of sadness hang over my head

I wonder when peace will be found.

But I know if I call on the Master for help

He can calm ev’ry tempest in me.

He will give me the strength to face any trial

If I but have faith to believe.

I may not have faith to move mountains

Or the power to still raging seas

But I know who to put all my trust in

When I’m tossed on the angry deep.

Though He may not spare me from the lightning

And the storms may rage on through the night

I know in the end that all will be well

For my one sure anchor is Christ.
