Knocking at your door, pulling you under, leaving you gasping for air,
Feeling yourself sinking into the depths of the sea;
God is there, waiting to pull you out of the rising sea; a life ring in your time of need.
When you feel as if you’ve given life all you’ve got and can’t give anymore;
When it is a dark and stormy night, when you are treading on the boulders of life,
When you are lost at sea- look for the roving light at the top of the lighthouse-
He is inside the light waiting to cradle you in His arms, to tell you that it is going to be okay;
Look to the Cross in times of trouble, for it will be your light.
