A Ghost On The Water

IT WAS A DARK NIGHT
In the middle of the lake
Diskiples in a boat
And their arms began to ache
'Cos they continued rowing
As the wind began a blowing
And they had no way of knowing
Just how long their trip would take.

It was then that it came to light
Walking on the water
It gave them all a fright
As the boat continued rocking
What they saw was truly shocking
And their knees began a knocking
As a ghost came into sight.

Then a voice said 'Look it's me'
They recognized that voice
Almost instantaneously
It was Jesus who was speaking
It was Jesus they were greeting
It was Jesus they were meeting
Who was walking on the sea.

It was a dark night
The diskiples wide awake
With Jesus in the boat
What a difference he did make.
No-one now was feeling fearful
No-one now was sad or tearful
All were now at peace and cheerful
In the middle of the lake.

No-one now was feeling fearful
No-one now was sad or tearful
All were now at peace and cheerful
What a difference Jesus makes.
