Hymn Lyrics John 6:16-21

The Setting Was the Sea

To the tune: SCHUMANN (http://www.hymnary.org/hymn/CCEH/854). Based on John 6:16-21. Words: William Weber, 2011.

v. 1
The setting was the sea,
chaotic, uncontrolled.
Disciples struggling ’gainst the deep,
were rowing in the boat.

v. 2
And then the Lord appeared,
was walking on the sea.
The Lord’s disciples greatly feared,
beheld the Mystery.

v. 3
This is not just a man,
but God in our own flesh.
All things are ruled by His command,
and on the sea He treads.

v. 4
Deliverance He brings
to those in dire distress.
For on the throne He rules as King,
delights to save and bless.

v. 5
So trust Him in your need,
for time and space He made.
The One who walked upon the sea,
believe, be not afraid.

v. 6
We praise you, O our Christ,
the Lord of heav’n and earth,
the Great I AM and sacrifice,
our God of matchless worth.
