Trouble comes my way like the raging sea
with high waves that surge upon my soul,
pound upon my mind with furious force,
and urges my body to shake and roll.
But God is mightier than the waves of the sea,
for he reigns and controls,
and he keeps me from sinking and drowning,
because this is his goal.
He is exalted higher than the waves,
greater than their strongest surge,
deeper than their depths,
mightier than their surf.
The sea is in his all-powerful hands,
for he rules it,
and when he speaks it obeys him,
so it is still for my benefit.
The raging sea will not last forever,
yet while it rages
I can cling to his promises of love and concern
and know he will end the seas rampage.
Waves of trouble may sweep over me,
but I will not be swept away,
for he is holding my hand,
and safe and secure I will always stay.
