In the Midst of the Raging Sea


In the midst of the raging sea,
There I was sailing.
The waves were pounding me,
Making me afraid.
(And it seems That Christ has left me,) x2
(But I no longer see him because of my weak faith) x2

Jesus when he saw me,
Came to me quickly.
In my despair and darkness,
He opened my eyes.
(When I saw him, I cried have mercy) x2
(He came to me quickly and had mercy on me) x2

The sounds of the angry waves,
Agonized my ears.
Darkness of the creeping night,
Has threatened my peace.
(And the tears, have not left my eyes)x2
(And the sleepless nights, have overwhelmed me) x2


I took the oar and started rowing,
But my hopes have failed
My weakness and my ignorance,
Brought more grief to me.
(And my Lord, at the shore sees me) x2
(When will you come to me, and restore my hope?) x2


I was in despair and drowning,
And my hope is torn.
I came to my beloved Jesus,
Offering him my tears.
(When he saw me, He had compassion on me) x2
(He stretched out his sweet hand, and dried my tears) x2
