Another League


We’d never leave the boat

without the Son of Man

calling us to come

and walk these mountain waves,

churning valleys,

white-capped plains—

without worry?

The Master of the sea

has pierced the depths

below our sinking feet

and surfaced with leviathan thrust

to brace our thrashing hands

and be with us.

The Spirit at our back

we stride the surf

with strengthening trust.

We never could have dreamed

the deep below our feet,

obedient squall!

Our destiny—another league

where wind and waves agree—

the Father’s all.
