Upon the Shore ...

Jesus is Waiting

Remember when we would walk

In faith

For many hours we would talk

Upon the shore

Peacefully we would pray,

My dear Jesus

Forever staying

Upon the shore ...

I departed from you

Foolishly

Searching for another view

Upon the shore

The tradewinds began ...

Wandering ...

I needed your love again

Can I ever return?

Upon the shore ...

That is when I suddenly heard,

My Savior Jesus,

The healing sound of your word

Lord, faith I will learn.

Patiently, you have stood,

O Lord,

There is no one I love more

Upon the shore.
