When Jesus whispers

Full Text

1 Out on life's stormy ocean
Wildly the waves may roll;
Loud is their fierce commotion,
But One can the pow'rs control.
Jesus whispers,
"Peace, be still!"
Jesus the wonderful King of the sea,
Can calm its rolling waves.
Loud the angry billows
Beat about my soul,
But they only drive me
Nearer to my goal.
What tho' the night be falling
Over the restless sea,
One never will forsake me,
He safely will pilot me.
Tempest and storm must cease,
When Jesus whispers, "Peace;"
Tempest and storm must cease,
When Jesus whispers, "Peace."
Tempest and storm must cease,
When Jesus whispers, "Peace;"
Tempest and storm must cease,
When Jesus whispers, "Peace."

2 Far from the peaceful harbor,
Doomed by the waves to die,
Courage! behold thy Savior
To rescue- now draweth nigh.
Peace be still, peace be still,
Peace be still, peace be still!
Jesus the wonderful King of the sea,
Can calm its rolling waves.
Raging waves obey Him,
Tempest gales have gone,
All is calm before Him,
Christ, the mighty One.
Safe from the storms of sorrow,
Entered the haven blest;
Peace for the troubled spirit,
And realms of eternal rest.
Tempest and storm must cease,
When Jesus whispers, "Peace;"
Tempest and storm must cease,
When Jesus whispers, "Peace."
Tempest and storm must cease,
When Jesus whispers, "Peace;"
Tempest and storm must cease,
When Jesus whispers, "Peace."
