From the recording Walk Upon the Waves

This song was written during  the Swannanoa Gathering music camp.  It comes from the story of Jesus walking on the water (Matthew 14).


If you need some certainty
If you’re feeling drained
If you need a place to stand
Walk upon the waves
If you need some harmony
If you need some space
Take a walk out on the sea
Walk upon the waves
Every day is a workday
Rollin’ stones up a hill
Each stone getting bigger
Each day getting’ filled
Look across the mountains
And out to the blue
The waves are rollin’
Are they callin’ you?
Quickly how the years pass
Tho each seems so slow
Fighting with the changing wind
Fighting with the flow
Travelin by steamship
Or paddlin a canoe
There’s light upon the water
Is it calling you?
When the night is darkest
At the height of the storm
When the sea is raging
When the sails are torn
Reach in to the ocean
And take off your shoes
There’s wonder in the water
Is it calling you?
