Saturday Synaxis

Jesu, Deliverer! come Thou to me:
Soothe Thou my voyaging over life's sea!
Thou, when the storm of death roars, sweeping by,
Whisper, O Truth of Truth!--'Peace! It is I!'

- from an Eastern Orthodox hymn, translated by J. M. Neale

(Painting: "Christ Walking on the Water," by Julius Sergius von Klever, c.1880)
