    Again, my faith like water falls.

    It ebbs and flows in tides

    That trap me where I stand.

    It cannot hold the weight of all

    My hopes and all my fears;

    They slip below the surface and

    Dwell in depths unseen.

    My weary heart is tempted to let

    Them lie, untouched, unfelt.

    But seedling faith in fourth-watch prayer still

    Knows, somehow, that He is there.

    He knows of faith and water, and of my

    Hopes and fears and depths;

    I give them to His keeping,

    For holding in His perfect hands.

    Again upheld by Saving Grace,

    I walk on faith like water.
