"Where is your faith?"

"Master , we perish," the disciples cried.
Then he arose, rebuked the stormy sea;
And they in wonder at the sudden calm
Must have been roused by his inquiring plea,
"Where is your faith?"

They had forgotten in that instant fear
That God gave man dominion over all,
And every threat of danger powerless was
'Gainst faith which challenges all error's thrall.
"Where is your faith?"

Faith is true firmness in the things of God,
To own no power but that which He ordains;
Faith is rebuke to every wind and wave
That rises to engulf with fears or pains.
"Where is your faith?"

How can man perish, since God is his Life?
How can he fear, since God and man are one?
How can we dream that storm and strife prevail
When there is faith in God's eternal son?
"Where is your faith?"
