You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise my soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You've never failed and You won't start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior


I will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine

    I really love this song. Before it came out I was asking God to give me the kind of Faith that can walk on water. I think He is now teaching me how to walk on that water. For I am in a place in my life where I need Him more than ever. I was thinking today at work about this song. And remembered how many times that I have asked God to give me that kind of faith! Because all I have right now is God. And it is some scary stuff to get out of the boat and walk towards Him without looking down at the water.
