Like times in the sea surf
The current pulls and pushes
I stand strong holding my own
Until that one time
When the current pulls
From a new direction
I am yanked down by my feet
Water folding in on me
Barely a breath I take
I am fully at the mercy
Of the power of grace

So often I am renewed and invigorated 
Splashing about in the waves
Feeling the cool spray on my face
Refreshed by the love and kindness
In which God invites me to swim
And then in a moment
I am caught by the riptide
Suddenly immersed in the power
Taken down and submersed in grace

It is both comfort and calling
Pleasurable and powerful
Hope in me and hope for others
Waves of mercy
Waves of grace
Waves overwhelming
Waters of life
