Before I entered my new job and got new friends and a new boss I was a sailor Man Sea waters runs through my veins With kisses, the cool winds have smothered my face These blue waves used to greet me goodmorning everyday And **** My body is so hot Because under the sun My skin is just baked
So now I'm just happy to see My good old friend again To unfurl the sails To hear the floorboards squeak under my feet To drink the moon glow cascading on us thick like milk
However One key characteristic of the sea is its unpredictability Sheer mystery And in my lifetime as a sailor It still leaves me Grappling with her curious cases of conundrums
Somewhere along the middle When we thought that we will just sail straight No We just got spat and slapped in the face By cruel waves and cold wind From a squall. Like a storm but more severe and sudden Too fast this hits us with no warning
The winds stirred the waters Infusing it with rage We're being tossed around, manhandled By the wall of water towering, Crashing on the boat and swamping everything Desperately trying to hold on to something Because I can't stand straight But how do I do so when I can't even get a hold of myself and think straight
As the waters flood the deck Questions flood my mind What What is happening and How How do we get out of it How do we keep this ship from getting wrecked? When dawn breaks tomorrow will there still be A beat and a breath inside our chests or Will the sun just find us on the shoreline dead?
Over the roar of the storm I'm asking why Why now? Why us? Why me? When I Have done nothing wrong to deserve this harsh punishment This cruel treatment My hands are clean I'm innocent Faithful, in fact To You Jesus
Jesus What are you doing? Why are you sleeping so soundly On a cushion at the back of the ship? How can you ignore this raging storm The impending wreck which will seal Our certain deaths? Don't you care? Can't you see? How can you bear to sleep through our agony? Have you forsaken us And allowed us wallow in despair and tragedy? Wake up! Jesus please Where are you in this desperate time of need?
Finally he awakens And to all my questions he responds with one as well He asks me Where Where is your faith?
I fell Silent And so does the squall Mighty you arise and speak with authority You command the wind and the waves to cease And they do They were viciously violent But now They've calmed down Completely The sea is conquered by Serenity
Wait One more question Who is this man? Who are you Jesus That though the tides and torrents come You can still sleep soundly like a baby Safely Resting in security with the fact That no storm can ever bring you down to defeat You are Peace so powerful You command all noise to Still Ness You see joy and beauty amidst the mess When chaos hears your voice It ceases So please Speak on
Maybe We'll have infinite questions but Zero or even negative answers Though the world falls apart falter we won't A paradox Transcending all understanding This powerful peace Strong serenity And that is because Hope is here And Hope cares for me For us Now i know That as long as He is with me the storm is a sanctuary
