Verse
Drifting out in the darkness, just a prisoner on life's sea
Death was like a sinking vessel anchored deep inside of me
Hopelessness weighed upon me, I was weak from the fight
Feeling like I'd go under for the very last time

Chorus
Then in a moment Jesus found me and threw out a lifeline
Alone in deep waters, till He came just in time
Though the waves tried to take me, Jesus sought me and saved me
Blessed hope became mine, when He threw out a lifeline

Verse
Though I still may face the tempest, often face the raging wave
They will never overtake me, Jesus guards me with His grace
I will rest within His safety, I will stay close to His side
Ever clinging to the lifeline, holding on for dear life
