Jesus walking on the water drew near
'It is a ghost', I cried out in my fear.
Blinded by the waves that pounded on board
I failed to notice that it was the Lord.
'Don't be afraid', the Lord said, 'It is I'.
'Lord, I'm so glad You're here' was my reply.
Worry and uncertainty caused such fear
and I failed to notice the Lord draw near.
Sometimes during the bad storms in my life
I become all oppressed by all the strife
But Jesus comes and joins me in the boat
and through the deepest storm keeps me afloat.
