Anxiety on the open sea, frightened men of Galilee
Jesus spoke, "Peace, be still! - comforts now my fearful will.

Troubled heart, life seems unjust
Seek Father, Son their words of trust.

Depression plagues me, flat I fall
Heavy laden, I hear His call.

Beyond beginning the Word was God
He anchors me - this world I trod.

Like disciples, who viewed His side
Glad my heart, His Word abides.
