Lord of Oceans

Last night, this floating palace
Was tossed by wind and wave.
This anxious heart cried "Father,
Stretch out Your Arm to save".

This morning when I wakened
Everything was stilled.
"Thank You, Lord", I murmured
As my heart with praise was filled.

"I'm grateful that You listened
And issued Your command,
Remembering that oceans too
Are in Your Mighty Hand".

When fearful, keep me mindful
That naught can bring me harm,
Because Your Child is sheltered
Securely by Your Arm.
