This text belongs to a rich tradition of hymns that draw upon sea imagery to establish the relationship between the believer and Christ (Hopper was known for his ministry to sailors). In the composer’s own words: “In times filled with personal strife, global instability, and other struggles, we look to Jesus Christ to ‘hush the ocean wild’ and to guide us safely to a peaceful shore.” A lovely anthem, with subtle dissonances to create a lush harmony.
