Long is the way, and very steep the slope,
Strengthen me once again, O God of Hope.
Far, very far, the summit doth appear;
But Thou art near my God, but Thou art near.
And Thou wilt give me with my daily food,
Powers of endurance, courage, fortitude.
The way is perfect; only let that way
Be clear before my feet from day to day.
Thou art my Portion, saith my soul to Thee,
O what a Portion is my God to me. (Amy Carmichael)
A great wind blowing, raging sea,
And rowers toiling wearily
Far from the land, where they would be.
And then, One coming, drawing nigh;
They care not, now, for starless sky.
The Light of life says, “It is I”.
They care not, now, for toil of oar,
For lo, the ship is near the shore,
And their Beloved they adore.
Lord of the Lake of Galilee
who long ago, walked on the sea,
My heart is comforted in Thee.
