The sun in all its radiance and every stormy night is held within the compass of our Creator’s sight. The one who stretched the heavens who gave the wind its course, is worthy of our worship; is God to be adored. We do not know the limits of wind or crashing wave. We cannot govern nature or curb Creation’s rage. We only know our future is safe with one whose power is strong enough to hold us in death or danger’s hour. To all who fear life’s turmoil or sink beneath the tide, the One who sees each sparrow still calls us to his side. The God who came in Jesus to rescue and atone is standing at the seashore and calls you to come home.
Tune: Penlan (In heavenly love abiding)
This was a commission from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) at Rock, North Cornwall, UK. It was part of a service to mark the station’s 10th anniversary.
