A Steady Ship

A steady ship
Is not one, driven by
Chaos of the storms or
Wills of captain driving her

A steady ship is not the one
Laid upon the shore
Destitute of purpose, or desire to
Soar upon the waves

A steady ship, is one anchored
One founded, deep in love
With confidence, in the One who made her and
In the One, who calls her home

From across the waters He calls
From across the sky He teases
And ushers to come deeper, further
Deeper into love

For life is a storm
Chaos, is the heart
Without peace, without Guide
But love, but peace is One

One who walks upon those waves and
Bid them to be still

So no matter what may come
Nor storms, nor crashing waves
Of heart or soul, of mind and thoughts
Or even of, daily life

I will trust, in that anchor
I will trust, in that One
The Ocean, of love
The Lord of a thousand seas

The One, fairest of all
More beautiful than skies and waters
Him who speaks, and wind does cease
Him who whispers, and all grow silent

Him who is, more than enough
He calls me His beloved one
He who tames, the seas and waves
It is He who calls me to rest

And trust, in His great name
For His glory, for His fame
For He is worthy, of it all
And He is, so good

So wonderful, forevermore
So vast in love, so wonderful
I praise Your name, forevermore
My God I sing to You

Faithful

With each wave
And every crashing, of the sea
Against the wall, the fortress
Of You, I find
You to be

More than enough for me

Faithful, and true
Steadfast, in the rain and
Good, forevermore
Even in the trials and
Even in the waves

Still You remain

No matter storms, that loom ahead
No matter waves, that crash around
Still, You remain the same
Faithful, through all days
My Shelter, my Hiding Place

My only One, my only Hope
My God I cling to You!
You, who have never failed me and
You, who never will

I trust, in Your great name alone, I
I cling to You alone!
