[Written for the Sentinel]


Just put your hand in His, and say,
Dear Father, take command!
He'll guide thy craft, tho' storm it may,
And bring thee safe to land.

And tho' the winds may shriek and rage,
Just banish all thy fear;
Again Christ will command the wave,
And prove that God is here.

The winds and waves can ne'er o'erwhelm,
Nor bring thee aught of ill;
Thy heavenly Father, at the helm,
Will guide and keep thee still.

Then trust Him with thy whole desires,
His way's above thine own;
And what now seem consuming fires,
Prove beacons to thy home.
