I was sinking deep in sin

1
I was sinking deep in sin,
  Far from the peaceful shore,
Very deeply stained within,
  Sinking to rise no more;
But the Master of the sea
  Heard my despairing cry,
From the waters lifted me,
  Now safe am I.
  Love lifted me!
Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help,
  Love lifted me.
Love lifted me!
Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help,
  Love lifted me.
2
All my heart to Him I give,
  Ever to Him I’ll cling,
In His blessed presence live,
  Ever His praises sing.
Love so mighty and so true
  Merits my soul’s best songs;
Faithful, loving service, too,
  To Him belongs.
3
Souls in danger, look above,
  Jesus completely saves;
He will lift you by His love
  Out of the angry waves.
He’s the Master of the sea,
  Billows His will obey;
He your Savior wants to be—
  Be saved today.

Indeed when nothing else seem meaningless, when we have no hope in anything else, the fact that we know we have a creator who loves us unconditionally, then does our spirits get lifted.... thank you

I can hear the congregation belting out this song on the nights when we were asked to choose our favorite hymns and we would do a sing-long with the Choir or Music Director! Amazing memories!! God’s message of Salvation is so clear in these lyrics!!

This morning I woke with this song on my heart. It is so refreshing to sing along with the piano musical. It reminded me of back in the days as a child going to church with my parents. Nowadays one does not hear a lot of hymns....

Thank you so much. I have an 89 year old brother that I call and sing hymnals to him. I live in West Colubia, Tx and he lives near Austin. I have a terrible voice but your piano helps very much. I will be 82 soon.

He has dementia but loves for me to sing the songs he has sung all his life. He asked me please to not hang up. So thank you soooo much for your contribution to making my brother very happy.

A poignant hymn in these troubled times when our hearts might sink through fear of what is happening around us. May the Lord bless you as your eyes focus on him.

Some likely know these lyrics word for word without even looking, but my challenge to each n every one of us is to HEAR THE LYRICS!

Ahead of singing special music, I have suggested folks close their eyes n JUST LISTEN! Seems every time I do this, my heart is deeply touched.... that's GOD!

He has something special for any n every person coming to Him... for answers, for acceptance, for encouragement, for rest/peace......... He's got it all & He's the only place you can find perfect authenticity!

Don't settle for knock offs, part truths, temporary fixes - NOT when Truth stands waiting to fill you to overflowing with His goodness!

Enjoy some of the comments too..... please. ox 😇 ox
