Captain Of My Soul

My sails were torn and battered
and my ship was sinking fast;
I could not stay on course
when I turned to you at last.

I thought that I could handle it
and make it on my own;
But I knew I was in trouble,
out here all alone.

I knew I needed you Lord
to help me make it through;
I knew that I was lost
and I knew not what to do.

Why couldn't I have looked beyond
and saw what lay ahead;
Because I had a will so strong
I was sinking here instead.

Down on my knees to you Lord
I begged your help that day;
I promised I would follow you
and let you lead the way.

You never hesitated Lord
but turned my ship around;
You brought my ship safe into port
and set my feet upon dry ground.

Now you are the captain
of both my heart and soul
You're always at the helm for me
and I know I'll safely reach my goal.
