Song: Walking On Water

Walking On Water

There’s a story about Jesus, how he came to the disciples, walking on the sea,
When they saw him, they were terrified. Was he a ghost emerging from the deep?

But Jesus called out that it was he, reassured them that all was well,
“If it’s really you, Lord, call me to come!” the disciple Peter yelled.

“Come!” Jesus said, “Come out of the boat, join me here standing on the water,”
The disciple stepped out, his eye on the prize, boldly following Jesus’ order,

But the sea was heavy with foamy white caps, the wind was blowing strong,
A few moments later he became distracted by all that was going on,

His focus was gone, his eye off the prize, he was sinking into the waves,
But Jesus reached out, lifted him up, kept him from a watery grave,

He brought him to the boat, an ark of grace and vision, took them all to the other shore,
“Trust in God with all your heart.” he said, “It will give you a solid floor.”

Chorus
The Word of God calls us to walk on the water, to step into our world in faith,
The Word of God calls us to walk on the water, to share the hope of saving grace,
The Word of God calls us to walk on the water, to love as Jesus loved,
The Word of God calls us to walk on the water, a witness of the holy One,
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh!

Jesus said that the Spirit is moving, that the presence of God is at hand,
Not a distant, vague possibility, but a reality on which we can stand,

Faith is the key that unlocks the door, revealing the God of love,
Trust brings a vision of unity, a communion with God as one,

Blessing on blessing, the spiritual gifts, our hope is in the Lord,
Grace upon grace, a new community, living in one accord,

The way of God, the way of Christ, gracious, unmerited, transforming love,
A benevolent God who lifts us up, who’s grace is more than enough,

God is love, God is life, God is the way that leads to peace,
Our anchor of hope, our solid ground, a shore line we can reach,

A power that makes all things new, restores what is broken down:
Hearts that are hurting, neighbors that are fighting, harmony that’s lost it’s sound,

Chorus
The Word of God calls us to walk on the water, to step into our world in faith,
The Word of God calls us to walk on the water, to share the hope of saving grace,
The Word of God calls us to walk on the water, to love as Jesus loved,
The Word of God calls us to walk on the water, a witness of the holy One,
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh!
