From where I am all hope seems lost
No help in sight, no lifeline tossed.
All night I sway on stormy waves
The land grows smaller, then fades away.
I take a breath and inhale the sea
Then relax my hands and sink beneath.
The light grows dim then fades from view.
A voice the whispers “I am here for you.”
A hand reaches down and grasps my arm
“I am here for you, be not alarmed.”
He picks me up and holds me tight
He calms the sea, rebukes the night.
No more alone, in danger or fear
I watch the land as it grows near.
He sets me on the sand
and takes my shaking hand.
“I am with you all the way,
Never will I let you stray.
Hold my hand, take my heart
From you I never will depart.”
I breath in deep the sea free air.
He smiles at me and fades my fear.
Step by step and hand in hand
My Savior and I walk across the sand.
Forever til eternity end,
I am with my Lord, my Savior
And very Best Friend.
