Vessel Upon the Waters
A storm is tossing her from her way
But she carries on the vessel of sight
Going on by works and her own might
her crew cries out "He shall remember us, surely!"
The crew is tossed to and fro
I cling tight to her stern to hide from what I don't know
I swallow salt water until I choke and cough
I cry and shout, "Oh, Have I been forsaken?
Covered by my guilt, shame and sin?"
A still small voice in my ear
"I have not forgotten you, My child
Let go of the stern, and you'll walk on the waves that are wild!"
For I know that His catch shall not slip
Falling down into the ocean wave
I sink a little but rise on this impossible path to pave
With One who constantly has my hand
It is clearly time to serve El Shaddai!
It is time to trust My Adonai!
I realize her time was so very brief
And as I look up, the clouds pull apart
The sun rays through for a beacon of truth to touch my heart...
"This is my command-be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
