I looked for the Lord while in the storm

Weary wayworn and torn

I was sinking like a ship tattered upon life’s sea

Looking for a hand to reach out to save me

I looked for the Lord beyond the storm

But blinded by the heavy swell that threatened to cause my harm

Without any hope that I could see

I was in need of the Savior to reach down and rescue me

I thought to myself how can I survive this trial

How can I bare to go one extra mile

I wanted so desperately to be free

From this storm that had overtaken me

In my vain thoughts I wondered did my Lord abandon me

Did He leave me here alone to drown in this sea

Then a hand; a strong arm reach down and lifted me

It was my Savior, my Lord, who came to rescue me

I said Lord I am ready to get out of this sea

Quickly as I spoke, His Word rose in my heart and and gently reminded me, “My Grace is sufficient for thee”

How much more l wondered as I stood with Him on that sea

The storm didn’t still but by now I could see

My heart was at rest as I walked in the midst of the waves with my Lord guiding me

As I reflect back on that boisterous sea, His Grace truly was sufficient for me

My Lord who I thought left me alone in that sea

Was there all along strengthening me

When life storms arise and certain they will

Thank Christ for the storm for this is His will

His child through His blood He has purchased you on Calvary’s tree

Surrender to Him and He will take care of thee

Storms come and go but remember still

Your Savior is with you and this is His will

Though trials and storms come as they be

It is those same trials and waves that push you to the Rock of Ages standing firm in the midst of your stormy sea.

“A Wretch Like Me” – David D. Hanson
