Rescue From The Sea

Rescue From The Sea

I walked out on the beach

To watch the waves gently roll

I find I’m like the tide

High and then I’m low

Sometimes I feel I’m drifting

Hopeless on the sea

At the mercy of the Water

To where it will carry me

Sometimes I stand strong

Like a lighthouse on the land

Other times I’m tossed about

Like many grains of sand

At times the storm clouds threaten

Sometimes my skies are blue

But then the rain comes pouring down

And there’s nothing I can do

Yet in my darkest hour

While I was lost at sea

The captain of the ship

Came to rescue me

While I was sinking in the depth

He reached out his mighty hand

Pulled me from the Water

And set my feet upon dry land

Now Jesus is the captain

And the world is the sea

The cross is the ship he sailed

The day he rescued me

He’ll forever be my captain

And I’ll be in his command

And we’ll sail the sea together

Until I reach the promise land
