Lord I feel I've lost command
The ship I've built is crashing from my hands
Everything seems so unclear
My tattered sails have all but disappeared
There was a lightning crash right over me
It struck so hard my ship began to sink
And just as the sea began to take me down
Someone reached right in and rescued me
La la la la la la la
Stranded so very very long
Lately lord I just don't feel too strong
See hopeless is carrying me away
I'm on my knees begging for today
There was a lightning crash right over me
It struck so hard my ship began to sink
And just as the sea began to take me down
Someone reached right in and rescued me
Lord hear my prayer, hear my prayer love will rescue me
Lord hear my prayer yes I know, I know, I know you'll rescue me
When your fear turns to faith, you'll find that you won't feel so alone
When your weakness turns to strength, you'll find that your suddenly back home
Lord hear my prayer, hear my prayer love will rescue me
Lord hear my prayer yes I know, I know, I know you'll rescue me
Lord I feel I've lost command
The ship I built is crashing from my hands
