Hide me now
Under Your wings
Cover me
Within Your mighty hand

When the oceans rise and thunders roar
I will soar with You above the storm
Father you are King over the flood
I will be still, know You are God

Find rest my soul
In Christ alone
Know His power
In quietness and trust

When the oceans rise and thunders roar
I will soar with You above the storm
Father You are king over the flood
I will be still, know You are God

    It can be figurative. The storms represent our problems and the trials we go through and to soar with the Lord means to overcome those problems with faith in Him. It can be also literal, like what happened in the Philippines where oceans really rose and thunders roared but still many of them still have faith in God and they acknowledged that God is greater than those storms. They remained still and know that He is God.

    If trials and problems come in our lives we should never give up, just continue to seek god's hand because if we trust god with all our hearts he is faithful who will let any temptation pass our way in which we cannot handle. Because 1 corinthians 10: 13 says "there hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but god is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. "

    It means that in whatever circumstances where are in we must learn how to stay calm and allow god to work his way in our lives. When confronted by problems and frustrations our tendency is to worry but god says in psalm 46: 10- be still and know that I am god. We need not to worry because god is in control. This may not be easy but we must have faith. God never makes a mistake and he knows what his plans for us and that is to give us hope.

    Just heard this song and I love it because for about 3 years now, I have been going through hard times. I have been asking myself so many questions and even now, the struggle still continues. Sometimes I even question whether there is a god up there and is it true that he watches over his word to perform it. But through it all I will be still and know you are go. You know what you are doing. All that I ask is to wrap me in your arms.

    For me it means that I will be standing, no matter what happens I will stand as your child and know that you are god. Even if there's a flood, fire, etc. Nothing compares to the l♥ ve he gave to us. So why gave up if god will help you? It also means that we should put our trust in god in hard times; always. God is in control of everything. He is the king of our hearts. ♥~♥.
