maybe i don’t have the strength
maybe i don’t have the faith
you brought me here in forty years
when i know this trip should take a week
i’ve shed my tears and shed my blood
been outran some by the flood
and winter steals my songs away
in all of this i’ve come undone
.
when you walk through the water
i will be with you
when you pass through the river
those waves they will not overtake you
when you walk on the fire
those flames they will not touch you
you are mine
you are mine
.
i’ve been a child
i’ve been a slave
and i’ve grown bitter
and learned to pray
i’ve packed my bags and started back
the cost is just too high to pay
.
when you walk through the water
i will be with you
when you pass through the river
the waves they will not overtake you
when you walk on the fire
those flames they will not touch you
you are mine
you are mine.
you are mine.
