I saw one day on a sandy shore,
A father and his child.
The curls were tangled on his head,
And his cheeks were rosy red.
I watched as the boy began to cry,
For the wind turned cold and wild. (reverb)
He lifted him in a comforting way,
And I heard him gently say:
“No fear my child, I am holding you,
While the angry winds do blow.
Mid crashing waves nearby, my child,
You’re safe from harm I know.
Just trust in me as we travel now,
On the path by a stormy sea.
Then come what may as the way seems long,
It is safe to go with me.”
And so today as trials come,
What a song, The Savior sings!
We’re fully grown, but hear His voice;
With assurance now it rings.
And each day we trust in His mighty hand;
Since He offers to lead your way. (reverb)
We go with Him when trouble comes,
For we hear Him gently say:
