Do You Ever Feel?

Do you at times feel helpless
Like a ship against the tide?
You feel the darkened waters
Constantly crashing 'gainst the side?

You're in tumultuous waters
You have been tossed to and fro
Your thoughts are turning frantic
And the tides too strong to row

You're out in the great open
At the mercy of the sea
And suddenly you're feeling
All your inadequacies

Feeling so awfully helpless
Forces out of your control
For they are so much bigger
Without help, affect your soul

There is one force that's greater
That is stronger than the rest
It is our Lord Almighty
For solutions, He's the best

When you're feeling tossed about
And your future's looking bleak
May it be God you call for
And the first one that you seek

For He's the greatest calmer
Greatest peace you'll ever find
When our own understanding
Leads us into these waters blind

He is always there for us
We need to give control to Him
And let the Lord take over
When you're just too tired to swim

For He is your protector
He'll safely carry you ashore
So call on Him and trust Him
Let His love for you outpour
