You are the Captain

















You are the Captain

We believe we are strong but in reality very weak

Our future is unknown and eternally very bleak

The seas are rough and the storms they are many

Trading our souls for just a penny

We treat our lives as one big pleasure trip

But You are the Captain

We are just passengers on the ship

We seek to ignore the love You generously provide

In You we must live and always abide

As long as we remain under Your protection

You will provide the correct direction

Your Word we avoid and give no lip

But You are the Captain

We are just passengers on the ship

Sometimes we want to just take the wheel

But instead need faith, drop and kneel

We are not worthy to steer or navigate

Choosing to have the devil as our roommate

Grasping for truth we always lose our grip

But You are the Captain

We are just passengers on the ship

You came to the earth to serve and to save

You came as a king but chose to live as a slave

In the temple You came and the moneychangers You did toss

Giving Your life for ours and dying on the cross

Enduring punishment and the crack of the whip

You are the Captain

We are just passengers on the ship

But we must have faith that You will help us reach our destination

Leaving this world towards a heavenly migration

You have our back and in You we have much hope.

In the darkness we live and fervently grope

You created us to go on this crazy trip

You are the Captain

We are just passengers on the ship

Our desires are many and we soon will stray

We should Leave it to Him and only worry about today

But You are all powerful and keep our enemies at bay

In You we seek and continually pray

Holding on for a while but perpetually slip

You are the Captain

We are just passengers on the ship

We keep asking are we there yet?

Yes You say, close we are and free of debt

One day the ship will arrive and on land we will abound

Citizens of Heaven we will be crowned

On that day we will run, hop and skip

You are the Captain

We are just passengers on the ship

You came and showed us the way

You showed us what it would be like one day

The trials are many and sometimes feel alone

We must stay lighthearted and sing not groan

Because we are safe as long as we remain on the ship

You are the Captain

We are just passengers on this trip
