The Boat Song

Sunset on the Sea of Galilee

One of the most rewarding experiences in the Holy Land takes place on the Sea of Galilee. Floating in a wooden boat with your fellow pilgrims, on this Holy Sea, you quietly drift in the water where Jesus performed miracles, spent time in prayer, and enjoyed fellowship with His friends. Many of the disciples fished in this water and lived nearby. I wonder how many times Jesus stared across this water in prayer and contemplation. Jesus also walked on this water.

Mark 4: 35-41

Floating on this vessel breathing in and out
Living in the moment
Just like Jesus

Staring cross the water Lost in contemplation
Enjoying my friends
Just like Jesus

And I treasure this feeling deep in my soul
And my heart is at peace in this silence
I’ve abandoned my fears and my need to control
I surrender my life and my love to you Lord above
I give my life to you Jesus

Lord I never dreamed I’d encounter you
In an old wooden boat on the Galilee
I never knew love could keep me afloat
Til you reached out your hand and you caught me

And your presence penetrates my soul
I cherish the blessings you’ve given
You are here in the wind and the seas gentle roll
I surrender myself and my love to you Lord above

I give my life to you Jesus

I’ll live my life for you Jesus

I give my life to you Jesus
