“It is a ghost!” they yell with fright
As He treads the breaker
A fearsome spectre of the night
Their hearts are faint their faith is slight—
Hark!—the ocean’s Maker.
When Peter heeding Christ’s command
Steps into the ocean—
A giant step for mortal man
Beyond what knowledge understands
Breaks the laws of motion.
But faith gives way to sight and sense
At the waters bluster
Now frightened by the evidence
As circumstance takes precedence
Faith has lost its lustre.
Near swallowed by the swirling sea
Doubting footsteps falter
Cries out in fear “Lord rescue me”
He grasps his hand and instantly
Treads atop the water.
Each step in life if forward-bound
Leads us to the future
Though doubt and danger might abound
You’ll never be abandoned, drowned,
If His Word’s your tutor.
Proceed in faith at Christ’s command
Do not doubt His presence
When you call out He’ll take your hand
You’ll walk through sea as on dry land
Faith is of the essence.
A giant step for mortal men
Into zones untested
Yet faith-filled lives must all begin
By putting all our trust in Him—
Faith in Christ invested.
