August 1982

 

Master of the Storm

 

Lord, I am at sea

Wayward and lost

The boat has holes

The sail is torn

Waves tear at the tiller

Wrenching it from my grasp

Lord, I am helpless

The storm is much too great

For me to face alone

 

Lord, please take this tub

And bless its course

Guide it to peaceful waters

And fruitful shores

Let its catch be great

A glory to your name

 

Lord, the storms are great

But You are greater

Your love beats all that can happen to your child

Its fullness will present its power

As we sail together

Through the sea of life

 

Thank You Lord

That You are all

That You are mine

That I am Yours

the 1982 Y.C.F. convention called:

"Let Down in Deep Water"
