The waters saw you, Lord, the coastlands trembled.
Through the mighty sea you made your way.
Though your footsteps were unseen, in the night you came to me
While the boat was tossing in the waves.
'Are you but a ghost?' I cried in terror.
'Take courage, it is I. Don't be afraid.'
'Lord, if it's you, command I come and walk upon the water now,
You whom even wind and seas obey.'
He said, 'Come to me and walk upon the water.
Come in faith - my grace will be enough.
If you believe, you'll come to know Love's power.
Come to me, and I will hold you up.'
I held the boat's edge, putting one leg over.
The sea was dancing underneath my feet.
I looked to you and I let go of everything I claim to know
Carried by the grace you've given me.
But can I really walk upon this water?
The wind is strong and I am so afraid.
My faith is weak, Lord, save me with your power.
I am sinking deep into the waves.
You raised your hand and stretched it out to save me.
The sea was parted underneath your gaze.
You lifted me up from waters wild; you claimed me as your child,
Saying, 'Why'd you doubt, O you of little faith?'
'I brought you out of Egypt through the waters.
I baptized you with power to believe.'
Truly, you're the Son of God, Lord Jesus.
Keep me in the harbor of your peace.
Be still my soul, for God can do all things.
