If I plunge into the depths, must I hold my breath?
Must I hesitate and anxiously ponder my fate?
Can one possibly stand undecided and wait?
“Follow me.” you say simply enough
Release your hands from their worldly cuffs
“I never said I was safe, I never professed to be tame”
Could a tamed man heal the crippled and lame?
Do you think so lowly of Me that you remain on the shore?
Basking in the sun and gazing at a distance, much too frightened to experience what’s more?
The sand will never satisfy you, the fickle tides only leave you dry
The Great Depths are where the adventures truly lie
You cannot be immersed when you long so desperately for ease
For pleasures, for comfort, for long life in the breeze
If only you knew what I have waiting for you out here!
Forsake your umbrellas, your beach towels, and your fear
Let My waves overtake you, let My vastness leave you in awe
There is no turning turning back now, for I have fulfilled the law
You cannot spend your days lying around in the sun and sand
An ocean of the abundant Life is for those who take Messiah’s hand
It will be scary at times and the waves will crash hard
Deceitful sharks lurk nearby and you must be on guard
But life in the sovereign depths is fullness indeed!
Leave the shore of safety, cross the sandbars and follow the King
