BibleGateway: Luke 8:22-25

ESV Text: Luke 8:22-25



KJV Text:

The section starts at about 2:49 and ends at about 3:43

     22 Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth. 23 But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy. 24 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm. 25 And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 25 :
I Will Sing my Maker’s Praises

1. I will sing my Maker’s praises 
And in Him most joyful be, 
For in all things I see traces 
Of His tender love to me. 
Nothing else than love could move Him 
With such sweet and tender care 
Evermore to raise and bear 
All who try to serve and love Him. 
All things else have but their day, 
God’s great love abides for aye. 

2. Yea, so dear did He esteem me 
That His Son He loved so well 
He hath given to redeem me 
From the quenchless flames of hell. 
O Thou Spring of boundless blessing, 
How could e’er my feeble mind 
Of Thy depth the bottom find 
Though my efforts were unceasing? 
All things else have but their day, 
God’s great love abides for aye. 

3. All that for my soul is needful 
He with loving care provides, 
Nor of that is He unheedful 
Which my body needs besides. 
When my strength cannot avail me, 
When my powers can do no more, 
Doth my God His strength outpour; 
In my need He doth not fail me. 
All things else have but their day, 
God’s great love abides for aye. 

4. When I sleep, He still is near me, 
O’er me rests His guardian eye; 
And new gifts and blessings cheer me 
When the morning streaks the sky. 
Were it not for God’s protection, 
Had His countenance not been 
Here my guide, I had not seen 
E’er the end of my affliction. 
All things else have but their day, 
God’s great love abides for aye. 

5. As a father never turneth 
Wholly from a wayward child, 
For the prodigal still yearneth, 
Longing to be reconciled, 
So my many sins and errors 
Find a tender, pardoning God, 
Chastening frailty with His rod, 
Not in vengeance, with His terrors. 
All things else have but their day, 
God’s great love abides for aye. 

6. Since, then, neither change nor coldness 
In my Father’s love can be, 
Lo! I lift my hands with boldness, 
As Thy child I come to Thee. 
Grant me grace, O God, I pray Thee, 
That I may with all my might, 
All my lifetime, day and night, 
Love and trust Thee and obey Thee 
And, when this brief life is o’er, 
Praise and love Thee evermore.
