about

Ocean is a song finding comfort in divine presence, yet still embracing some anxiety.

lyrics

As now a flower petal falls on a mighty sea
Deep blue and surging waves swell endlessly
The clouds are lit by sunlight, dancing on the crest
Of ceaseless frightening waves, no feeling, thought or rest
Peace fills the salty air, blowing like a tender breeze
Feel now the presence here, creator of moments like these

As now a spirit moving, glides over water deep
And blows this breath of life, briefly we keep
Gold streams of light revealing, showing all that’s good
Dark mystery hides a power, just dimly understood
Peace fills the salty air, blowing like a tender breeze
Feel now the presence here, creator of moments like these

As now the waves are crashing, splash on a rocky shore
Moved by some mystic force, forever more
And now a flower petal, sinking in the waves
And so, the sea consumes, now taking what it gave
Peace fills the salty air, blowing like a tender breeze
Feel now the presence here, creator of moments like these
