23 Who go to sea in ships, and in great waters trading be, 24 Within the deep these men God's works and his great wonders see. 25 For he commands, and forth in haste the stormy tempest flies, Which makes the sea with rolling waves aloft to swell and rise. 26 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. 27 They reel and stagger like one drunk, at their wit's end they be: 28 Then they to God in trouble cry, who them from straits doth free. 29 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. 30 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. 31 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!
