The One Who Makes the Wind Obey
© 2019 Mollie Pearce McKibbon
The ocean swells with the rising tide
And I cannot see the other side.
My craft is small and the water deep,
But I must cross it before I sleep.
How wonderful to trust my frail steps
To the One who made the ocean depths;
To the One who makes the wind obey,
My Jesus, who carries me all the way.
As I sail over the bounding waves,
I trust my soul to the One who saves,
Mightier is He than any king,
God, the Maker of everything.
I am never alone, have no fear,
For my Protector is always near.
He guides me through every storm
And shelters me from eternal harm.
