Verse 1
See the stricken boat
As it is tossed upon the sea
Hear the fearful cries
That wake the man from Galilee
He stands before the raging
Speaks peace and harmony
Winds and waves obey
He is the man who calmed the sea
Verse 2
Hear among the crowds
A desperate father's anguished plea
"Heal my dying child"
He begs the man from Galilee
With words that banish sorrow
"Don't fear, but just believe
Daughter - live again!"
Commands the man who calmed the sea
Bridge 1
And as she stands before them
What joy from agony
He's the Master and the Maker
He's the man who calmed the sea
Verse 3
Feel the bitter pall
That shrouds the hill of Calvary
High upon the cross
There hangs the man from Galilee
The earth it quakes with sorrow
The sky grows dark with grief
All creation mourns
To lose the man who calmed the sea
Bridge 2
But, no, death could not hold Him
The stone is rolled away
For He's the Master and the Maker
He's the man who calmed the sea
Verse 4
Now I hear the call
That echoes down through history
“Come, deny yourself
Take up your cross and follow Me
Through every joy and sorrow
My grace is all you’ll need
Trust me in the storm
For I’m the man who calms the sea.”
Bridge 3
No fear shall overwhelm me
For Lord, I do believe
You're the Master and the Maker
You're the man who calms the sea
Bridge 4
I’ll trust You for tomorrow
And seek You for today
For You're the Master and the Maker
You're the man who calmed/s the sea
