Calm in the Storm

Speaker : Pastor Sam Naumann
Luke 8:22-25
(ESV) One day he got into a boat with his disciples, and he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side of the lake.” So they set out, 23 and as they sailed he fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water and were in danger. 24 And they went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” And he awoke and rebuked the wind and the raging waves, and they ceased, and there was a calm. 25 He said to them, “Where is your faith?” And they were afraid, and they marveled, saying to one another, “Who then is this, that he commands even winds and water, and they obey him?”

Hymn: TLH 396: Oh, For a Faith That Will Not Shrink

Hymnary.org Organ Audio

1. Oh, for a faith that will not shrink 
Tho’ pressed by many a foe; 
That will not tremble on the brink 
Of poverty or woe; 

2. That will not murmur nor complain 
Beneath the chast’ning rod, 
But in the hour of grief or pain 
Can lean upon its God; 

3. A faith that shines more bright and clear 
When tempests rage without; 
That, when in danger, knows no fear, 
In darkness feels no doubt; 

4. That bears unmoved the world’s dread frown 
Nor heeds its scornful smile; 
That sin’s wild ocean cannot drown 
Nor Satan’s arts beguile; 

5. A faith that keeps the narrow way 
Till life’s last spark is fled 
And with a pure and heavenly ray 
Lights up the dying bed. 

6. Lord give us such a faith as this; 
And then, whate’er may come, 
We’ll taste e’en now the hallowed bliss 
Of an eternal home.
