Word-filled Wednesday

"Peace Be Still"



by David Stewart
"And He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea,
Peace, be still.
And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm"

(Mark 4:39)

When sounds the world's threatening cry,

And roaring of their thunder.

When you feel the heaving of your life,

And see the foaming water.


Then from the midst of this swelling sea,

A voice so calm and clear.

Twas, "Peace be still," that reached my ear,

Calmed my heart, and allayed my fear.


Oh, words of a Savior that gave me Peace,

Though the world round me roar.

Safe in Him, my peace complete,

There for evermore.




David Stewart
