*Opening Hymn "I Know Whom I Have Believed" #714
Lord, it’s you, we need to hear from you
When we are alone
When we go away to pray
When we have little faith
When we are battered by the waves
When the wind is against us
When we get in the boat
When we’re terrified by our ghosts
When we seek you on the mountain
When we cry out in fear
When we start walking on water
When we begin to sink
When we are far from land
Lord, it’s you,
speak to us,
calm our fears,
calm our storms
Strengthen our resolve
Remind us who you are
Walk to us
Call to us
Reach out your hand and catch us
Quiet the wind around us
Lord, we worship you for “Truly you are the Son of God.”
