Johnny Cash – Troublesome Waters lyrics

Troublesome waters much blacker than night

Are hiding from view of the harbor's bright lights

Tossed in the turmoil of life's stormy sea I cry to my Saviour have mercy on me

Then gently I'm feeling the touch of his hands guiding my boat in safely to land

Leading the way to heaven's bright shore

Troublesome waters I'm fearing no more

[ ac.guitar ]

Troublesome waters around me do roll they're rocking my boat and racking my soul

Loved ones are drifting and living in sin the treacherous whirlpools are pulling them in

Then gently I'm feeling...

[ ac.guitar ]

When troublesome waters are rolling so high I'll lift up my voice and to heaven I'll cry

My Lord I am trusting give guidance to me and steady my boat on life's troubled sea

Then gently I'm feeling...
