When you pass through the waters

Deep the waves may be and cold,

But Jehovah is our refuge,

And His promise is our hold;

For the Lord Himself has said it,

He, the faithful God and true:

“When you come to the waters

You will not go down, BUT THROUGH.”

 

Seas of sorrow, seas of trial,

Bitter anguish, fiercest pain,

Rolling surges of temptation

Sweeping over heart and brain –

They will never overflow us

For we know His word is true;

All His waves and His billows

He will lead us safely THROUGH.

 

Threatening breakers of destruction,

Doubt’s insidious undertow,

Will not sink us, will not drag us

Out to ocean depths of woe;

For his promise will sustain us,

Praise the Lord, whose Word is true!

We will not go down, or under,

For he says, “You will pass THROUGH.”
