This life on earth is compared by folks,
To a ship upon the sea.
One day the water seems very smooth;
Then storms sweep over me.
Some days I’m overwhelmed with doubt;
Since God I cannot see.
But today I caught a glimpse of FAITH
In a Scripture I did read.
It spoke of Moses, man of faith— (Hebrews 11: 27)
Who believed what He could not see.
He saw beyond things visible,
Where faith detects the incredible!
I long to see through that “eye of faith”
Christ’s power at work in me.
I look for Him as His plan unfolds
Through the Scriptures I will see. (Romans 10: 17)
Refrain: Just fix your eye on things above,
Like a sailor in a “sub” below.
Keep your eyes directed to the “periscope” of faith,
To view God’s leading wherever you go!
