I mentioned Psalm 107:23-31 during our Sunday morning service. Here is the Scottish Psalter’s rendition, with an audio you can listen to as well. I love this tune…
Who go to sea in ships, and in
great waters trading be,
Within the deep these men God’s works
and his great wonders see.
For he commands, and forth in haste
the stormy tempest flies,
Which makes the sea with rolling waves
aloft to swell and rise.
They mount to heav’n, then to the depths
they do go down again;
Their soul doth faint and melt away
with trouble and with pain.
They reel and stagger like one drunk,
at their wit’s end they be:
Then they to God in trouble cry,
who them from straits doth free.
The storm is chang’d into a calm
at his command and will;
So that the waves, which rag’d before,
now quiet are and still.
Then are they glad, because at rest
and quiet now they be:
So to the haven he them brings,
which they desir’d to see.
O that men to the Lord would give
praise for his goodness then,
And for his works of wonder done
unto the sons of men!
