Oh Men of Little Faith

            There Was a Great Calm

We followed Him when He stepped in the boat
Despite dark clouds that formed above the sea,
In Him, we heard and saw what prophets wrote,
Who else except Messiah could He be?

And then a howling gust fell from the sky,
The sky and sea were mixed together black,
The ghost of death appeared within each eye,
Our mortal fears and doubts again were back.

Alarmed that we might die, we called our Lord,
But He, despite our peril, was asleep,
We woke Him as the sky upon us poured
And arms of waves reached up to drag us deep.

When He awoke, we saw He was displeased
Not by the storm, for storms will always be,
When He rebuked the storm, our fears were eased,
And faith, no more a victim lost at sea.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
