Storm starts scary stirring

Fear-frothed waves rise flailing

Curl, crash o’er, repeating

Taut terror’s churl swirling

Anxieties e’er pulling

Toward nameless jaws’ gnawing…

Dim faith gasps, grasping

Unseen hand; shadows separating

At Hallowed Heart’s heaving…

Soul soothed, sustained, surfacing

Savior’s arms ne’er forsaking
