11. Like The Angels

Everlasting God
by Brenton Brown


When I am sinking down, when I am lost at sea
No solace to be found, no ground beneath my feet
I turn to you as I go down, I reach for you through roaring waves
My only hope is in Your arms, my only prayer is that you'd save me
Cause you make me soar like the angels
You let me walk on the water
You let me run with white horses
Jesus my strength when all is gone
You are my strength when all is gone
When I am all alone, no land is in my sight
All others lost from view, and comes the darkening night
I reach for you as I go down, I look to you through wind and waves
My only hope is in Your arms, my only prayer is that you'd save me

Brenton Brown

Behind the Song:
"Written at probably one of my lowest moments with the illness. Jude and I had moved back to South Africa to try and rest. My life felt completely outside of my own control - I was marooned by sickness and sadness and the song came out in one sitting. I always find it amazing that with God one moment we can be sitting in a sinking ship in the middle of a broken sea, and the next moment Jesus comes and we're walking on water! Peter didn't just walk on water one lazy Sunday afternoon while the disciples and Jesus were sitting on the beach eating a fish barbecue. He did what no other human being, apart from Jesus, has ever done. And he did it right after he and his mates were convinced they'd seen a ghost and were going to drown in a vicious storm! Talk about zero to hero. It reminds me of life before and after corporate worship! One moment I'm going down and the next I'm with the angels, near to God." - Brenton Brown
