Lord! thou didst arise and say
To the troubled waters, Peace!
And the tempest died away;
Down they sank, the foaming seas,
And a calm and heaving sleep
Spread o’er all the glassy deep;
All the azure lake serene
Like another heaven was seen.
Lord! thy gracious word repeat
To the billows of the proud!
Quell the tyrant’s martial heat,
Quell the fierce and changing crowd!
Then the earth shall find repose
From oppressions, and from woes;
And an imaged heaven appear
In the world of darkness here.
Lord, Thou didst arise and say. H. H. Milman. Christ Stilling the Tempest.] First published in Bishop Heber's posthumous Hymns, &c, 1827, p. 36, in 2 stanzas of 8 lines, and appointed for the 4th Sunday after the Epiphany, being based on the Gospel for that day. It was repeated in Milman's Psalms & Hymns, 1837, and subsequently in many hymn-books in Great Britain and America.
