helpless before the power of God

a drop of water to His raging sea

both in awe of His waves

and buoyed up by them

wondering at the incredible joy

of being allowed to frolic here

wanting others, too, to have this joy

knowing that that same power that saved me

is also their salvation

helpless to do more than what He allows

human frailty by His holy fire empowered
