Crescendo presents a beautiful rendition of the Christian hymn, ‘Master The Tempest.’

master the tempest is raging Crescendo

The song gives us the biblical message that the Lord Jesus Christ is in perfect control of every storm in our life which is very important for all of us right now.

The song has been sung very beautifully with controlled singing and the build of harmony and phrasing towards the end was just amazing. Only the sovereign God can calm the storm that we are weathering today.

‘Master, the Tempest Is Raging’ is a hymn based on Mark 4:36–41. The song was written by Mary Ann Baker, it focuses on the story of the Savior and His disciples crossing the Sea of Galilee, when Jesus “rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still.”

Master, the tempest is raging!
The billows are tossing high!
The sky is o’ershadowed with blackness.
No shelter or help is nigh.
Carest thou not that we perish?
How canst thou lie asleep
When each moment so madly is threat’ning
A grave in the angry deep?

According to a write-up in the book Our Latter-day Hymns: The Stories and the Messages, by Karen Lynn Davidson, the author says, “Mary Ann Baker was left an orphan when her parents died of tuberculosis. She and her sister and brother lived together in Chicago. When her brother was stricken with the same disease that had killed their parents, the two sisters gathered together the little money they had and sent him to Florida to recover. But within a few weeks, he died, and the sisters did not have sufficient money to travel to Florida for his funeral nor to bring his body back to Chicago.”

Of this trial Baker said, “I became wickedly rebellious at this dispensation of divine providence. I said in my heart that God did not care for me or mine. But the Master’s own voice stilled the tempest in my unsanctified heart, and brought it to the calm of a deeper faith and a more perfect trust.”

(Chorus)
The winds and the waves shall obey thy will:
Peace, be still.
Whether the wrath of the storm-tossed sea
Or demons or men or whatever it be,
No waters can swallow the ship where lies
The Master of ocean and earth and skies.
They all shall sweetly obey thy will:
Peace, be still; peace, be still.
They all shall sweetly obey thy will:
Peace, peace, be still.

Watch Crescendo perform a beautiful rendition of ‘Master the Tempest’ today and be blessed by the message behind it that Jesus can calm every storm in your life.
