J.S. Bach, Cantata BWV 81, “Jesus schläft, was soll ich hoffen?” (Sigiswald Kuljken) – Read text
From Ashes: Sturm und Drang
Out of the storm, He comes, He comes, clearly, speaking victory – comes with calmness in His step and silence for each dread. Watching mountains quake, they quake to see such sureness step upon these waves of doubting fury; all trembling piques stand still. And from the storm, He brings, He brings the resting peace of endlessness, the answer which no peace could know, borne here upon the sea. On through the storm, He reigns, He reigns, and, sovereign, knows the ebbing tide. No wave is wasted in His rule, no feeble vessel lost.
