Restoring Serenity

As I was homeward bound this morning, a song came on my mp3 player that I’ve listened to many, many times before…but…I actually heard it for the first time today and I knew I needed to share it with all of you as the next installment. I kept hitting the “repeat” button as tears streamed down my face. What a revelation.

I am including the lyrics as well as I believe you need to see the words and hear the music to get the full effect. Do yourself a favor…tune out the world, turn up the volume, and let this song wash over you. See if it doesn’t affect you in much the same way that it did me. I’ll be interested to know your thoughts.

I give you Rich Mullins and We are Not as Strong as We Think We Are

 

Well, it took the hand of God Almighty
To part the waters of the sea
But it only took one little lie
To separate you and me
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are

 

And they say that one day Joshua
Made the sun stand still in the sky
But I can’t even keep these thoughts of you from passing by
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are

 

We are frail, we are fearfully and wonderfully made
Forged in the fires of human passion
Choking on the fumes of selfish rage
And with these our hells and our heavens
So few inches apart
We must be awfully small
And not as strong as we think we are

 

And the Master said their faith was
Gonna make them mountains move
But me, I tremble like a hill on a fault line
Just at the thought of how I lost you
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are

 

We are frail, we are fearfully and wonderfully made
Forged in the fires of human passion
Choking on the fumes of selfish rage
And with these our hells and our heavens
So few inches apart
We must be awfully small
And not as strong as we think we are

 

And if you make me laugh
I know I could make you like me
‘Cause when I laugh I can be a lot of fun
But when we can’t do that I know that it is frightening
What I don’t know is why we can’t hold on
We can’t hold on.

 

It took the hand of God Almighty
To part the waters of the sea
But it only took one little lie
To separate you and me
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are

 

When you love you walk on the water
Just don’t stumble on the waves
We all want to go there somethin’ awful
But to stand there it takes some grace
Cause oh we are not as strong
As we think we are
No we are not as strong
As we think we are

 

Walk on the water
Walk on the water
If we could just hold on
Just hold on
