Oceans

You call me out upon the waters:
the great unknown, where feet may fail…
And there I find You in the mystery…
In oceans deep my faith will stand.

And I will call upon Your Name
and keep my eyes above the waves;
When oceans rise, my soul will rest in Your embrace
for I am Yours and You are mine…  (Song of Solomon 6:3)

Your grace abounds in deepest waters;
Your sovereign Hand will be my guide…
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me,
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now!

Chorus

Spirit, lead me where my trust is without borders,
let me walk upon the waters wherever You would call me!
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander,
And my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Saviour…

Jesus reaching out  through the waters

Psalm 144:7a “Send Thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters…”

Matthew 14

23  And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, He was there alone.  24  But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.  25  And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.  26  And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a spirit;” and they cried out for fear.  27  But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, “Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.”  28  And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water.”  29  And He said, “Come.” And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.  30  But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, “Lord, save me.”  31  And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him, “O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?”  32  And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.  33  Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped Him, saying, “Of a truth thou art the Son of God.”
