My study in the word often provokes songs in my heart. Those who know me know that I often turn an average conversation into song, but we are encouraged in Colossians 3:16 to share these songs with each other. Paul writes, “Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God” (NASB). Yesterday our gathering of believers met and discussed the miraculous story in John 6 about Jesus walking on water to come and comfort the disciples in the midst of a storm, and I was moved to write the following song.

The Lord of Storms

By Jason Truett Glen

 

There’s a sign of love in every storm

There’s a power that makes us all reborn

There’s a healing salve for all the thorns

There’s a grace that brings us to our Lord

 

See our Lord, the Lord of storms

See how strong his face and form

See our Lord, the Lord of life

Bring us home through darkened nights

 

Though the mighty waves wrench our hearts

Though we fail to play our parts

Though we feel the enemy’s fiery darts

Though we fear, a strong tower is our Lord

 

See our Lord, the Lord of storms

See how strong his face and form

See our Lord, the Lord of life

Bring us home through darkened nights

 

Take and eat His holy bread

Take and weave this holy thread

Take and speak life unto the dead

Take and live life unto our Lord

 

See our Lord, the Lord of storms

See how strong his face and form

See our Lord, the Lord of life

Bring us home through darkened nights
