Standing at the water's edge, i feel a trembling fear
As the waves crash 'round my ankles feel the thunder in my ear
I see the change is coming, the wind is at my back
But doubt overtakes me and my eyes turn to black
My past lurks behind me, keeping me on guard
I don't want to chance it, these steps are just too hard
I know He's behind me but what can i do
I'm frail, i'm human, and i don't want to fail you
{ i can't walk on water with these dirty feet
But He can walk on water and He'll carry me}
So put your arms around me carry me to sea
Waves knock against me but i know I'm free
From death and loneliness, darkness, despair
This life is choppy but i don't care
{chorus again}
