The night was dark and stormy, lightning lit up the sky
Your little boat was rocked and tossed around in the sea
the sharp and jagged rocks drew nigh
Without warning there was a loud ripping noise as the
sail tore and the mast fell down on the wooden deck
The little boat that you were so proud of was now
a sad and broken wreck.
I knew you were out there somewhere, where your tired
and weary body lay I couldn’t see
All I really knew for sure my darling was how dear you are and
how much you mean to me
If only I could hold up my head just high enough to look down
through the deep waves in the ocean blue
I know I could find the strength I would need to make a path
that will lead me right to you.
Though many fierce storms have passed over where you lie now
since your boat struck those rocks and was tossed into the sea
I've been praying for a miracle and you'd be found before these long drawn out days turn into months
I pray that God will lift you high up from the ocean's floor below and help you see the light that will guide you
To a safe path that will carry you across undulating waves of the sea
and soon my love finally you'll be home again with me.
