my namesake almost drowned

once, out on a turbulent sea

his doubt overwhelming his faith

fearing more the power of the sea than

trusting the invincibility of his Friend

like him, I falter

here, in this place, now, at this time

I fall

wanting to and trying not to

I fall

all that keeps me safe away from doom

His ever invincible hand

pulling me out from this restless sea

standing me firm within His power
