Lord of the Waves

You walked all night to meet your friends
as the waves washed the soles of your feet
They saw you far off; they screamed in fright
“Is it real? It’s a ghost that we see!”

Take courage my friends, it is I, don’t be afraid
Take courage my friends, it is I, Lord of the waves”

Lord, if it’s you, then ask me to come
to you now on the waves,” Peter said.
You bid him to come; he left the boat;
and he walked till he noticed the wind.

Take courage my friend, it is I, don’t be afraid
Take courage my friend, it is I, you can walk on the waves

“Master, save me!” Peter cried
as the waves pulled him into the deep.
You reached out at once to hold him up
as the waves washed the soles of your feet.

Take courage my friend, it is I, don’t be afraid
Take courage my friend, it is I, you can walk on the waves

As you reached the boat and they took you in
the wind died and your calm touched the waves.
Your friends in the boat now bowed to you
They said, “Truly, you are who you say!”

Take courage my friends, it is I, don’t be afraid
Take courage my friends, it is I, Lord of the waves

Based on Matthew 14:25–33 and Mark 6:51–52.
