Chaos and Calmness



When everything is wrong
The day has passed and nothing's done
And the whole world seems against me
When I'm rolling in my bed, there's a storm in my head
I'm afraid of sinking in despair.

Teach me, Lord to have faith
In what you're bringing me will-
Change my life and bring you glory &

There on the storm I am learning to let go
Of the will that I so long to control
There may I be in your arms eternally
I thank you, Lord, you are the calmer of the storm.

You rebuke the wind and the waves
Once again I find I'm amazed at the power of your will
Cause I'm a child of little faith
I feel the wind and forget your grace
And you say, "Peace, be still."

Oh, when the torment blows
The middle of the sea
May I had never trust..never trust in me
Cause there in your arms I find-no tragedy.

There on the storm I am learning to let go
The white wave's high, it's crashing o'er the deck
And I don't know where I go
Where are you Lord, is this ship going down?
The mast is gone so throw the anchor
Should I jump and try to swim to land?

There on the storm, teach me God to understand
Of Your Will that I just cannot control
There may I see all your love protecting me
I thank you Lord, you are the calmer of the storm.
