Little one, shore-stuck, so water shy; shivery hands clutching fears.
Holding them, all the while hating them, with no way to make them disappear.
Come down now; down to the waters come. Take your sins from 'round your neck.
Bury them...bury them down in the waters' flow.
And, be dead to sin...now live free from death!
You can feel it in the waters...Come and let me wash your sins away...away...away!
Light will shine upon the darkness on the moment that the waters break...they break...they break!
When the waters break! When the waters break!
What is this? Something is drawing me somewhere I never thought I'd go.
On my way...it's sounding clearer now. Going on...now I'll follow.
I can feel it in the waters...Come I'll let You wash my sins away...away...away!
Light will dawn upon the darkness on the moment that the waters break...they break...they break!
And the waters break! And the waters...
See, that storm upon the ocean? I Who formed the shadows know that I, the Lord, am Lord over the seas!
You are mine; be sure I'll save you. I've designed these waves to take you further out,
the winds to set you free!
Look! The stars lit up in brilliance from the farthest point will still send out
their silvery laughter down to you.
Sails stretched tight! The wind is running by your side to keep you coming
'Til your home can find it's way to you.
Sail on! Sail on until you're through! Sail on! Sail on until you're through!
Here's my Word given to guide you through the blur of what may blind you.
It is to your hands a steady'd skill....It's a skill!
Know it well, and it will lead you as you sail on open seas to distant worlds;
And, there it leads you still.
On this day, I start my journey; unafraid of what waits for me, being sure of Who is at my side!
Throwing off what is uncertain. Letting Love be all my burden. Loving Him, my Captain, and my Guide!
Sail on! Sail on until you're through...until you're through! Sail on! Sail on until you're through........
Give me the wings! Give me the wings of the dawn! And, I'll fly 'til I've flown far beyond!
There I will find what I have found everywhere. Just as much as You're here...You will be there!
If I should sleep, sleep in the house of the dead, even there You will hold me the time that I slept.
There on the sky...if it was for me to climb...looking up, You are all I would find...I would find!
Darkness is not dark to You! Darkness is bright as the day! Night shines like stars in Your eyes
And, there's no where that I could go to that could hide me from You!
There You are 'round me now! You in Your fury left nothing unchanged!
And, You're making a man out of the boy that I am! And, In your hands, both me and the seas are tamed!
You can feel it in the water! Come and let Him wash your sins away...away...away!
Light will shine upon the darkness on the moment that the waters break..they break...they break!
When the waters break! (echo) When the waters break! (echo) When the waters................
