The Indian Advocate
August. :j j NO S
Christ stilling the Tempest,
ily Kittie E. M'Canna.
Fear was within the tossing bark,
When stormy winds grew loud,
And waves came rolling high and dark,
And the tall mast was bow'd.
And men stood breathless in their dread,
And baffled in their skill
But One was there who rose and said
To the wild sea, "Bestill."
And the wind ceased it ceast'd that word
Passed through the stormy sky;
The troubled billows knew their Lord,
And sank beneath His eye.
Anil' slumber settled on the deep,
AnB silence on the blast,
As when the righteous fall asleep,
When death's fierce throes are past.
Thou that didst rule the angry hour,
And tame the tempest's mood
Ohl send Thy spirit forth in power,
O'er our dark souls to brood.
Thou that didst bow the billow's pride,
Thy mandates to fulfill ,
Speak, speak, to passion's raging tide,
. tSpeak, and say, "Peace, be-still."
