Praise the Lord,
Who commands the Earth to spin,
And keeps the waves from engulfing the land,
For He has saved my soul from sin,
And saved me from the webbed snares of the evil one.
He has led me to the river
And showed me my heart in its waters,
But He did not let me drown and sink,
For I have surfaced with fresh air in my lungs.
Praise the Lord!
He swept a path before me,
He waited for me to follow.
Though my course was laden with fog,
My steps toward Him became slow,
But His light did shine through,
It broke my clouded vision
Now I walk with my eyes fixed on You,
You are my God,
I will let no other guide me,
I will wait on your beckoning Word,
I will go higher and higher with You
Until the stars become my companions
And the Earth my stepping stone.
