LOST FISHERMAN’S PRAYER

At dawn yesterday
set out to fish from my boat
A great storm came up
couldn’t keep her afloat

So I pray —
In deep water I call out for help
and I pray –
Sweet Jesus, is someone looking for me?
Now the ocean is silver from the moon
Oh Lord I’m lost.
Oh Lord, please guide me home

Don’t think that I can last
another hour out here all alone
Can’t see the land
and I’m aching in every bone

So I pray –
Nothing to cling to but faith
and I pray –
Sweet Jesus, is someone coming for me?
Now the ocean is golden from the sun
Oh Lord, I’m lost,
Oh Lord, please guide me home.

I feel myself slipping away
and there’s so much I haven’t done
Love to see my sweet children faces
Would like to kiss them every one

So I pray –
It’s so hard to hold up my head
and I pray –
Sweet Jesus, there’s a boat—is it coming for me?
Now the ocean is rosy from the dawn
Please help them see me
Oh Lord, please guide them to me
Oh Lord, please guide me home.
