The Helmsman

What to do when asked to go
Into waters yet unknown
Matters not if calm or storm
Unfamiliar though they are
The Helmsman knows the way

How to navigate from deep
Through shallow shoals that want to catch
Would He who guides forsake us then
Leave our ship to list and wreck
Forgotten on the way

Fear not all you who ride along
Trustworthy is this Captain strong
He’s been this way o’re and o’re
Knows intimately that distant shore
His promises are sure

He’ll never leave though strife protests
He’s certain of the course that’s next
Listen to His clear commands
Obey, He helps us understand
He’s with us all the way


Thank You, LORD, that You are trustworthy and true. You are the way, the truth and the life. Draw us ever closer, through calm or storm, to see the truth of You! We praise You that the fiercest forces of nature obey Your command! Thank You for being our Helmsman through this sea of life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Acts 5:29
“But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”

John 14:6
