I stand in the center
Of the river of my life
Rapids rage, whitewater foams.
Uncertain which way to turn
I am unable to move a single step.
Afraid, heart pounding, mind swirling
Chest tightening, I can't breathe.
You, Holy Spirit, become my stepping stone
You enable me to move,
Each foot planted firmly on
I feel your hand steady my foot
You hold me secure
Walk me step by step to safety.
I know beyond doubt
That should the next step
Be a waterfall
Your Spirit will hold me up.
In your grace and strength
I can walk anywhere
Through deepest valleys
Should you call me to come
