The Boat


The Boat

I am leaving the shore, in my mind.
I’m getting into the boat with you…
I have no idea where we’re going
but I trust that you do.

I’ll face the storm by your side
behind your cloak, I will hide,
far from the shore of all I fear
into the unknown, far and wide.

I don’t deny that I’m afraid
as I look out at this tumultuous sea,
but I’ve fixed my gaze upon your face,
wherever you lead is where I’ll be.

I’ll stay close, as you know,
from this boat I dare not go,
let the battles of men rage on,
with you, alone, Lord
my heart is calm.

Though the stars fall to the earth like hail,
sun and moon from the sky disappear
your love for me will never fail,
forever, I am in your care.
