“…and here shall your proud waves be stopped” (Part Three)

III.
“Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”
(Mark 4:41)
And in the wildly shaking boat,
The waves full in their tempest fury,
The Lord asleep there in the boat,
Calmly sleeping, fearless, sleeping
While all about him roared the waves;
Waking then he stood and turned
Upon the waves, rebuked them, said,
Peace! Be still!, his voice a wall, as if to say,
Here are your doors, waves. Go no further.
And they looked on Him and thought,
Who is He, then, this man among us,
That winds and seas should bow to Him?
