Hillsong United – Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) lyrics

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
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine

    This song is really talking about trusting god. The woman singing is singing about trusting god like Peter in the bible did when he walked on the water to Jesus. We need to remember to trust him because he will not let you drown if you focus on him and keep him at the center. If you take your eyes off of him you will drown in the chaos of your life. No one is perfect but Jesus will make you perfect in his presence. He is ours and we are his. He will always love us.

    Hmmm this particular song just gave me the strength to trust God the more and focus on Him instead of the storms and challenges am going through presently, like am telling God that where I have the tendency to fail Him due to the worries and cares of this world, He should give me the grace to stand and trust Him, because He cares for me, and my walls are continually before Him, and He has even tattooed me in His palm, He has better plans for everyone, and we have to go through a process, like when Jesus had to go into the wilderness, where he fasted the devil tested Him, but He over came, so when we are going through the process God gives us the grace to over come.

    "Oceans" is beautifully constructed, deeply intimate, first person singular, present tense narrative prayer of praise, declaration and petition (and my daughter’s favorite song for bed time). The core message of this song is the prayer of petition, "Spirit lead me..." and declaration, "my faith will be made stronger, in the presence of my Savior."
