A CRY FROM THE WATERS It was you who called me out To walk upon water Why let me sink? It was you who calmed the storm And the waves obeyed Why not now? This unknown is indeed great My feet is failing me Darkness surrounds me, where are you? The waters are deep and wide Ruthless waves raging violently How long can faith stand? Is there a place where trust has no borders Where mortals live forever And sinners walk on water? Is there a presence where The soul sinks deeper in truth And joy overcomes darkness? Please lead me there Though deep beneath the ocean Your grace abounds, and your sovereign hand Ever able You've never failed And you won't start now
