Ein schreckliches, brausendes,...
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Ein schreckliches, brausendes, pfeifendes Toben der Wellen unten,
der Stürme von unten, von oben, fällt oft mit Ungestüm ein schwaches Schiffgen an.
Doch Jesus Gnadenwort und Wille bringt bald die angenehmte Stille,
dass man, durch sanften Lauf, zum Haven treiben kann.

Une terrible, rugissante, sifflante houle
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Une terrible, rugissante, sifflante houle creuse les vagues,
la tempête va d'en bas, d'en haut, tombe avec force sur le frêle navire.
Mais la parole pleine de miséricorde et la volonté de Jésus apportent bientôt le calme  agréable,
qui fait que l'on peut arriver au port par une course douce.
