about

Every time I've heard someone preach or reference Peter walking on water, it always seems a little abstract. With this song, I wanted to dive into what might have been running through Peter's mind during this wonderful bible story.

lyrics

I see a figure walking on the water
I see my friends who shiver and they stutter

You tell us to take heart and not to worry
You call my bluff and tell me to start walking

I’m falling, please catch me
I’m falling, please catch me

My faith is strong compared to all the others
And yet I feel my feet sink into water

I’m falling, please catch me
I’m falling, please catch me

I’ve stepped out of the boat
I’m running toward you
I’ve stepped out of the boat
And now I’m scared I’ll fall

You take my hand and save me from drowning
The winds die down and now there is no doubting

I’m falling, you’ll catch me
I’m falling, you’ll catch me
I’m falling, you’ll catch me
I’m falling, you’ll catch me
