Like an ocean deep and wide

And like a pond so crystal clear…

Is God’s love for His creation

With a depth that He holds dear.

Like a roaring crashing wave

Is His wrath that doesn’t last;

It’s like a calm gentle river

When He forgets our sinful past.

The cleansing waters are refreshing

With a tinge of mineral salt;

The ocean is His masterpiece

And it’s perfect without a fault.

We are surrounded by the ocean

And its fierce winds as well,

But He restores our soul and calms its waves

When in His loving palm we dwell.

The ocean is majestic

With hidden treasures that are deep;

With innumerable and immeasurable

Timeless gems we ought to seek.

The harvest is plentiful

And many fish abound,

As wise fishermen we cast our nets

To bless and turn many lives around.

But if we’re caught in a rip

And we’re helpless and afraid,

We lift our hands to heaven

And to the Lord we cry and pray.

When we’re drowning and we cannot cope

We must remember this…

That our lifeguard walks on water

And all fear and torment He will dismiss.
