Jesus, Captain of Lifeís Sea

I have a friend in Jesus
Who guides me through the gale
A first mate and a skipper
Who helps me to set sail.
He offers strength and guidance
A helmsman at the wheel
An ever-steady beam of light
A fortress made of steel.

Heís the master of the ocean
My refuge and my rock
A harbor that I turn to
My anchor at lifeís dock.
Heís a mighty sailing warrior
A helping hand indeed
A pilot through the churning waves
He meets my every need.

Heís the One I always run to
When the waves wonít let me be
The lighthouse that I turn to
On a rough and troubled sea.
Heís a smoothly sailing vessel
A refuge from the storm
The gentle breeze that sends me to
An island, sweet and warm.

Heís a brave and fearless skipper
A shelter from the heat
My water when Iím thirsty
A vessel filled with wheat.
Heís a sure and steady sailor
My Captain on lifeís sea
No matter where I journey
He goes along with me.

Matthew 4:18-20 (KJV)
As Jesus was walking
beside the Sea of Galilee,
he saw two brothers,
Simon called Peter
and his brother Andrew.
They were casting
a net into the lake,
for they were fishermen.
Come, follow me, Jesus said,
and I will send
you out to fish for people.
At once they left their nets
and followed him.
