He hath spoken, Be still,
The Rebuker of seas;
The command was for me,
And my heart is at ease;
He hath hushed into silence
The waves and the winds,
By applying His blood,
And removing my sins.


He’s the Prince of peacemakers,
All glory to God,
To redeem me, and cleanse me,
He shed his own blood;
My adoption is sealed,
A’m a child of the King,
And for ever and ever
Of Jesus I’ll sing.

He hath quickened my soul
By a life from above,
It was done by the Spirit,
Its essence is love;
He hath pardoned and washed me
As white as the snow,
And my heart with His love
Does this moment o’erflow.


He’s a wonderful Jesus,
This Savior of mine,
He’s the great Son of God,
A Redeemer divine.
He’s my strength, and my wisdom,
My life and my Lord,
And enthroned in my heart
To be loved and adored.


I will love Him and serve Him,
From now till I die,
For His love fills my heart,
And His beauty my eye.
He’s the fairest and dearest
Of all to my soul,
And our lives shall be one,
While eternities roll.
