Lord, I am here. ''" But, child, I look for thee
Elsewhere and nearer Me. ''"
Lord, that way moans a wide insatiate sea:
How can I come to Thee? ''"
Set foot upon the water, test and see
If thou canst come to Me. ''"
Couldst Thou not send a boat to carry me.
Or dolphin swimming free ? ''"
Nay, boat nor fish if thy will faileth thee:
For My Will too is free. ''"
Lord, I am afraid. ''" Take hold on Me:
I am stronger than the sea. ''"
Save, Lord, I perish. ''" I have hold of thee,
I made and rule the sea,
I bring thee to the haven where thou wouldst be.
