The floods will come, surely,

They will come from above and

Below they surge

Sweeping waters break in


Tests come and storm into life

Overwhelming from behind

In a boat we are safe

The trials and tests dissipate

With Jesus there, they recede and

The flood keeps going down


Waters can mean something else:

Something pertinent to faith

The waters symbolize baptism in the name of the Lord

Where people are safe


Life immersed in the life-giver

Saved from wily ways, the flesh and the devil, as

Jesus surrounds and saves from evil


By his guiding hand, he takes his flock in,

And helps them will to begin again

With the God who gives
