Peace be Still – by Carol Sampson

Darkness falls across the sky
as the day begins to fade.
Jesus wants us to cross over to the other side,
so we all get into the boat thinking “it’s gonna be alright.”
We see our Master resting in the stillness of the night.

But something stirs the peaceful scene so very unexpectedly;
a lashing wind, a mighty gale.
We’re so afraid our hearts they fail
so we cry out “Oh Master, don’t you care that we’re gonna drown?
Can’t you do something to save us ‘cos this ship is going down?”

‘Peace be still!’ Jesus cries.
And the storm quickly subsides.
“Oh you of little faith, why do you fear?
You ought to know by now I’m always here when you need me.
Peace be still.
When the storms of life surround,
Peace be still.”

Still today just like then, fear grips the hearts of men,
because in our boats so tossed and torn,
we find it hard to bear the storm,
so we cry out in desperation, “God where can you be?”
If we take the time to listen, He’ll whisper quietly,

“Peace be still,” hear Him cry
and your storm will quickly subside.
“‘Oh you of little faith, why do you fear?
You ought to know by now that I’ll be here when you need me.
Peace be still!
When the storms of life surround,
Peace be still.”
