O Lord, when the waters rage and foam,
Still the storms and grant us your peace.
When the gift of creation becomes burden,
Still the storms and grant us your peace.
When our fears threaten to overtake us,
Still the storms and grant us your peace.
Speak your word to the wind and to the sea, Fill us with faith.
Show us your care in the service of others, Fill us with compassion.
Make the joy of your peace overflow in our lives,
Fill us with hope.
