Walkin’ On the Water


Have you ever gazed only on your Creator,
So that nothing else existed?
Did you forget the thundering and winds,
Crashing and whirling about you?
Did you step beyond the walls of safety,
Consciously trusting your Lord?
Have you ever felt the thrill of walkin’,
Walkin’ on the water?

Have you ever faithfully stood for your Lord,
Doing the right amid the foes?
Did your heart beat with fear and faith,
Knowing that others watched and laughed?
Did you bow your head humbly to your King,
Knowing He would see you through?
Have ever felt the peace of sleepin’,
Sleepin’ with the lions,
Walkin’ on the water?

Have you ever spoken boldly for your Saviour,
And roughly tossed to the ground?
Did you feel the pain of stinging words,
Your name smeared with mud and scorn?
Did you wipe your cheek and try again,
Grateful to be worthy of Him?
Have you ever felt the joy of singin’,
Singin’ at midnight,
Sleepin’ with the lions,
Walkin’ on the water?

Have you ever seen the things of this world
Through the eyes of your Redeemer?
Did pleasures, worries, and sins seem
As dust as you looked to the sky?
Did you feel the power of His Spirit
Give you victory o’er temptations?
Have you ever felt the strength of soarin’
Soarin’ with the eagles,
Singin’ at midnight,
Sleepin’ with the lions,
Walkin’ on the water?


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Nice rhythm i your lines and great praise to Our Lord

I love the progression of end lines. The 4 at the end a snapshot of who we can be in Him IF we left go and LET HIM. Thoughtful and thought provoking.
