When the tide comes rolling in,
And the mighty oceans roar,
It can go on land so far.
That is all . . . it goes no more.
When the storm clouds gather round us
And the great big raindrops fall,
Just so much will fall to earth
As it heeds the Master's call.
When the load becomes so heavy
That the body cries in pain,
Remember that this too will end -
Like the ocean and the rain.
So adorn thyself with gladness.
Remember, God is really there.
He takes time to feed the sparrow,
And He always answers prayer.
