O Lord, Our Strength And Confidence

O Lord, our strength and confidence,
Our eyes are unto Thee;
Thou art the rock of our defence,
Our song of victory,
Thou who dost still the violence
Of any raging sea.

Thou at the flood didst sit as King;
What are our floods to Thee,
To whom it is a little things
To walk upon the sea?
We wait to hail Thee conquering,
King of eternity.

Only, O Lord our God, we pray,
Teach us to do Thy will,
Through windy hours and flying sprays
Thy purposes fulfill,
Until the word of yesterday
Thou speakest - "Peace, be still."
