The deepest waters are swallowing me whole
yet, my throat remains parched and my eyes can no longer produce tears.
I stretch my hands up through the waves, reaching out to my God.
He reaches out to me, breaking through the water and the fears.
Thoughts flood my mind of things past and present sorrows
yet, even as I am immersed by the darkness, the Lord comes near.
His love always answers. His faithfulness always endures.
His mercy and grace will soon appear.
He alone is the light we can see when all else is dark.
The one true God, whom I lift my eyes, will meet me in the unclear.
