171. He Bids Us Come; His Voice We Know

by Wesley
He bids us come; His voice we know,
And boldly on the waters go
To Him, our God and Lord;
We walk on life's tempestuous sea,
For He who died to set us free
Hath called us with His word.
Matthew 14:22-23,29; John 10:4; Matthew 11:28; Mark 1:17
Secure, on boisterous waves we tread,
Nor all the billows round us dread,
While on the Lord we look;
The tempter drives his vortex round,
We pass it as on solid ground;
The wave is firm as rock.
Isaiah 45:22
But if from Him we turn the eye,
We see the raging floods run high,
Our hearts are full of fear;
Our foes so strong, our flesh so frail,
Reason and unbelief prevail,
Forgetting He is near.
Isaiah 35:4; Acts 27:23-24
Lord! we our unbelief confess,
Do Thou our little faith increase,
That we may fail no more,
But fix on Thee a steady eye,
And on Thine outstretched arm rely,
Till all the storm is o'er.
Mark 9:24; Luke 17:5; Psalm 25:15; Psalm 112:7; Deuteronomy 26:8; Psalm 107:23-30
