The waters are calm
all is right today
a smile upon my face
as I kneel down to pray.
I sigh, warm in Your embrace
silence and serenity
overtakes this place.
No matter where the river goes
I shall always seek
the presence of my Lord and God
an listen to Him speak
even if the rivers wild
and the storm tears up the tides
I will hide myself in Jesus
it will be alright.
Today, everything seems wrong
My Lord, its so hard to be strong
Oh, Father, where are you in this mess?
I need Your love and gentleness.
So I'll search, but I can barely see
I need my Master here with me
So dear Lord, may I find you today
amoung the rapids, as I weekly pray.
The storm has finally calm down
Praise God, my spirit did not drown
You were near, and You took my hand
and You lead me to drier land.
I know a tide will come one day
and try to take my peace away
But I know, no matter what I face
I'm safe in Your embrace
So let the river flow
some days fast and some days slow
I'll hold onto Jesus no matter where it goes!
