The loud blast leaps from wave to wave,
Around our heads the thunders rave,
And dark, dark is the midnight sky,
Save when the lightning flashes high.
 
O! God whom we revere!
Thy voice can still the raging deep,
Thy mercy lull the winds to sleep
Then, Father, hear!
In Thee we trust-to Thee we fly
Guide and protect us, or we die!
 
The yawning waves around us dash,
And shine in the glare of the lightning’s flash;
The billows rush-the breakers roar,
And drive our bark on the rocky shore.
Lord! in this deadly fear,
We have no hope-no help but Thee;
Thy voice alone can calm the sea
Then, Father, hear!
In Thee we trust-to Thee we fly,
Guide and protect us, or we die!
