Who is this?

by Mark.

That day when evening came,

He said to His disciples, 

"Let us go over to the other side."

Leaving the crowd behind,

the took Him along, just as He was,

in the boat.

There were also other boats

with Him.


 furious squall

 came up, 


the waves broke

 over the boat, 

so that it was nearly 



Jesus was in the stern, sleeping

on a cushion. 

The disciples woke Him 

and said to Him, "Teacher,

don't you care

 if we drown



He got up, rebuked the wind and said

to the waves, "

Quiet! Be still!


Then the wind died down 

and it was completely calm


He said to His disciples,

"Why are you so afraid?

Do you still have no faith?"

They were terrified and asked each other,


Who is this?

Even the wind and the waves

obey Him!"

[mark 4:35-41]

Do you know who this is?

It is Jesus, King of Wind and Wave--

Jesus, King of Earth and Sea,

Jesus, Son of God, Son of Man,

Jesus, loving Friend of Sinners...
