Jesus Calms the Storm


Mark 4:35-41

That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.”

Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 

A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. 

The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”

He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

  2. There were some fishermen
    Fishing on the lake
    Their hearts were in fear
    For the coming storm

    The wind blew strong
    And the rain lashed down
    Their minds were in panic
    They just wanted their homes

    But then they remembered Jesus
    They went at once to seek him out
    Sleeping in the bottom quarters
    At peace and unaware

    The fisherman at once cried out
    Saviour don’t you care
    We are fearing for our lives
    You know that we will drown

    Jesus rose up and looked at the storm
    And with a mighty voice
    Cried out oh storm you will cease
    And instantly the storm was gone

    Laughing and joking the disciples
    Were in for a bit of a shock
    For Jesus turned round with a frown
    And said why are you afraid do you still have no faith

    Their hearts were challenged to the core
    This man controls the wind and rain
    Their hearts will filled with awe
    And their faith that day must have grown

    Are you in a storm right now, this day
    Are you fearing for your very life
    Then that Jesus all Powerful One
    Can calm the storm in you
