we ride the peaks and valleys
of the life that God has brought
though low points are unpleasant
there's a lesson to be taught
.
you can't be filled with wonder
if you've never tasted fear
you're strengthened when you're drowning
in an oceanful of tears
.
denied the tidal fury
you can't feel the hands that soothe
there won't be seasoned sailors
in a world where seas are smooth
.
on crests, there's no residing
we just visit when we may
when tides of fortune sink us
we shall vow to rise someday
.
we're better when we're battered
through the briny depths, we'll roam
we may encounter riptides
but they'll never be our home
.
no peace in the Pacific
quite the opposite's instilled
yet oceans, in their umbrage
will give birth to seamen, skilled
