With HIM on the throne ....

Heb 12:1 Therefore since we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Heb 12:2 looking to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right of the throne of God. Heb 12:3 For consider Him who endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest you be weary and faint in your minds.


As the storm raged
Frightened I sank
I cried for help
And His hand on mine
He pulled me up
And we walked hand in hand
As the storm raged
My hand gripped His
A little more tighter than before
And as we walked
I got accustomed to the storm
For I knew
As long as I held His hand
Though fearsome it might seem
I could walk midst the storm
And it would not touch me
But though I knew
I still winced when I saw
The raging sea
And the powerful winds
And then He said
In simple words
"Do not fear
Just look at Me".

And now I hear
That the storm still rages on
Frightens men and sinks their ships
Blinds their eyes and deafens their ears
But my hand in His
And my eyes on HIM
I can only hear
His gentle words
"Do not fear
I am near
