[Master, carest thou not that we perish? – Mark 4:38
The metric is -‘-‘-‘-‘ as in: Oh how’ I love’ to write’ a rhyme’ ]
When Jesus is asleep astern
There’s something here for us to learn:
Why trouble Him when He’s at peace?
We’ll wait. No doubt the storm should cease
But if it won’t and if we drown,
The Savior, too, is going down …
And how is that in Heaven’s plan—
Some storm to take the Son of Man?
You see the simple truth be told
In promises embraced of old:
Whenever, then, the Savior’s near
A storm is nothing we should fear.
