Your healing balm gently covers me
Sealing me in a cocoon that warms and soothes
Flowing over me
Not to drown,
But to surround me with Your love
And to draw me into Your Presence
And Your healing embrace
That takes away all my fear
And replaces it with the security only You can provide.
Never to drown
Only to surround me with Your peace
That calms and lifts me up
On a wave that carries me to You.
You’re the ocean vast and wide
And the boat where I can hid
Safe, amid the storms and strife
And waves that want to take my life.
Because even in the depths, You are there
Giving me a reason to triumph o’er despair
I am safe where You are
No place is too far
Beyond Your reach
Please teach me
Not to fear
But to bend my ear
To Your whispers of hope
And Your safety rope
That wraps me in cords of love
Sent from Heaven above.
