THE SHIP OF WELLNESS (Song Lyrics)

sail forward lake constance

Chorus

Sailing over the ocean grand

Sights set beyond what I can see

I am the captain of this here ship

Steering with the words that flee

Flee out of a joyous heart

On course for prosperity

 

A life cradled in safety

A life with no fear

Knowing that I’m not alone

That Jesus is here

 

Oceans roll, and seabirds cry

Songs fragrance the wind

As white sails mirror the clouds

A new life begins

 

I’m on the ship of wellness

Abundantly free

Sickness is tossed overboard

Bye captivity

 

Chorus

Sailing over the ocean grand

Sights set beyond what I can see

I am the captain of this here ship

Steering with the words that flee

Flee out of a joyous heart

On course for prosperity

 

And I declare I am rich

Rich in God’s mercy

And I declare I am healed

Grave clothes out to sea

 

I sail through the trials of life

Sheltered in His arms

Picturing the grand old ship

Safe from every harm

 

Yes, free to sail wherever

His Spirit does lead

No bondage to weigh me down

Healing is decreed

 

Chorus

Sailing over the ocean grand

Sights set beyond what I can see

I am the captain of this here ship

Steering with the words that flee

Flee out of a joyous heart

On course for prosperity

AFFLICTION’S FIRE (Song Lyrics)

fire element

Chorus
Affliction’s fire is burning
Purging, burning
Affliction’s fire is searching
For golden purity
In you, and yes, in me
In me
In you, and yes, in me

In the heat of the battle
When we feel we can’t go on
Open blind eyes to the truth
Bubble up a brand new song

A new song that lifts the truth
May our hearts be filled with love
Love that binds us to the Way
The Truth, and the Life above

Chorus
Affliction’s fire is burning
Purging, burning
Affliction’s fire is searching
For golden purity
In you, and yes, in me
In me
In you, and yes, in me

In the heat of the battle
See the chains of sorrow go
See the chains of hopelessness
Broken effortlessly so

Chains of pain and worthlessness
Links of failed relationships
Fear that’s tied them together
Gone, with the word of His lips

Chorus
Affliction’s fire is burning
Purging, burning
Affliction’s fire is searching
For golden purity
In you, and yes, in me
In me
In you, and yes, in me

It may seem unbearable
This hot purging, burning fire
But know it is God’s own will
To release us from the Liar

So let’s be brave in His strength
’Cause in Christ we will succeed
Let’s keep our eyes on the One
Who has us lovingly freed

Chorus
Affliction’s fire, it’s burnt off
All of our hindering woes
Affliction’s fire has searched us
And found our life of gold in Him
Found our life of gold in Him
Our life of gold’s in Him
Nowhere else
Our life of gold’s in Him
