teach me, Lord

Calmer of the Storm
-by Downhere

when everything is wrong; the day has passed and nothing's done
and the whole world seems against you
when i'm rolling in my bed; there's a storm in my head
i'm afraid of sinking in despair

teach me Lord to have faith in what You're bringing me
will change my life and bring You glory
there on the storm teach me God to understand
of Your will that I so long to control
there may i be in your arms eternally
i thank You Lord; You are the calmer of the storm

You rebuke the wind and the waves; once again i find i'm amazed
the power of Your will
'cause i'm a child of little faith; i feel the wind and forget Your grace
and You say "peace, be still"

teach me Lord to have faith in what You're bringing me
will change my life and bring You glory
there on the storm teach me God to understand
of Your will that I so long to control
there may i be in Your arms eternally
i thank You Lord; You are the calmer of the storm

and oh, when a torment blows in the middle of the sea
may i never trust, may i never trust in me
'cause there in Your arms I find no tragedy

there on the storm i am learning to let go
the white waves high, it's crashing o'er the deck
and i don't know where to go
where are You Lord; is this ship going down
the mast is gone so throw the anchor
should i jump or try to swim to land?

there on the storm teach me God to understand
of the will that I just cannot control
there may i see oh your love protecting me
i thank You Lord, You are the calmer of the storm
