New Living Translation (NLT)
24 Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves. 25 About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water.
The river rushes toward the sea
And I grab hold of what I can
As the currents take me where they will
And the high banks hold me in,
But I am helpless!
Helpless against a foe for whom I am no match
And for whom I am in awe,
Amazed by its beauty
And terrified of its power,
My mind is boggled by it all
And I am dumbstruck!
From the moment that I fell in
I have struggled to understand,
I have calculated and planned
Every twist and every turn of its course,
But my plans have all gone awry
And I am hopeless!
I am able to make it to shore,
Or someone comes to my rescue
(A godsend; walking on the water)
I will surely die!
