The Man Who Walks on Water



THE MAN WHO WALKS ON WATER

 

The Man Who Walks on Water

 

Just as Peter on the lake

I set out on a quest

My boat is drifting out to sea

God puts me to the test.

 

The depth is deep, the width is wide

A storm is setting in

The waves are thrashing all about

I feel a fear within.

 

A figure looms within the midst

I tremble in the night

He seems to walk on water

My heart is filled with fright.

 

Fear not says He, have courage

I do not bring you harm

For it is I who comes to save

There's no need for alarm.

 

He bids me walk on water

His flowing robe, I see

But I lose faith as I step out

Upon the angry sea.

 

My trust is gone, I start to sink

I panic as I go

I cry out, "Lord please save me."

Strong winds begin to blow.

 

His staff is there before me

His mighty hand comes out

He plucks me from the churning sea

Why did I ever doubt?

 

Into the boat, the wind is still

He calms the restless sea

If He will soothe a violent storm

He'll do the same for thee.

 

Oh precious child of little faith

You are His son or daughter

Look to the One who calms the sea

The man who walks on water.
