Lyrics

PART THE WATERS

(Words & Music by Tennyson Walters)  

 

Sometimes I get discouraged

Weighted down by all the luggage

This world places on me

The mountains seem so high

The valleys seem so low

If only I could fly

 

Go beneath the undertow

Find a place where I can rest

Relinquish all the stress

A place of solitude

Where troubles can’t intrude

 

Then I remember, I remember it was

You, it was you who, who

 

Part the waters, roll back the sea

Drove the enemy to their defeat

Part the waters, set the captives free

Spawned a miracle won the victory

And I know my God, You can do

Do the same for me

Same for me, same for me

 

If only in my mind

That place I must find

To escape the realities

Life’s haunts and complexities

For amidst all the hustle

On wings I will shuttle

Yes, prayer will take me there

The word to that sphere

Over on the other side

Where peace and joy abide

Where fear is no more

And tranquility an open door

 

Then I remember, I remember, it was

you, it was you who, who

 

Part the waters, roll back the sea

Drove the enemy to their defeat

Part the waters, set the captives free

Spawned a miracle won the victory

And I know my God, you can do

Do the same for me

Same for me, same for me

 

If I keep my mind stayed on you

You will keep me in perfect peace

So dear Jesus help me to pray and

never to cease

To be still and know you’re my God,

you’re my retreat

And store your Word in my heart

And keep it replete

(CHORUS OUT)
