Shut their mouths,O Lord, shut them all up for me,
they tell news of despair and not of peace,
“She trusted in her God”, they say
they are voices that scream night and day.
Still the storm around me, Lord
tears and prayers I to Thee outpour,
Still the storm around me, Master
Lest I die of the feared disaster.
Invincible seem the storm around me
waves of fear and doubt are these,
storms of fear keep company these days,
storms that cover and hide thy Face
