When the storms toss you afar
Shipwrecked with a broken sail
There is a King who names all the stars
A prisoner of burdens He will bail.
Tell Jesus, tell Him in a prayer
In tears still He will hear
Go close to whisper
All the things causing a stir.
There were times I too despaired
And sought the wrong listening ear
Jesus, a friend no one compared
For you, time He will always share.
Never think He doesn’t know
Your state of pained unrest
Did you forget He has divine control
O’er the troubled tempest?
It takes nothing to have Him near
Just as you are, He sure won’t mind
For since He remains Lord o’er the waves and air
Everlasting peace you will find.
