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

Inspired by …

HE LEADS ME SLOWLY …. To Be Sung Slowly

woman on cliffs gazing at mountains

He leads me slowly
He leads me slowly
Through this dark, dark vale
Through this dark, dark vale

Repeat
Oh!

I don’t know where He’s leading
I don’t know where He’s leading
Through this darkness
Through this darkness

But I know He is with me
Yes, I know He is with me
In this dark, dark place
In this dark, dark place

All I see are dark clouds
All I see are dark clouds
In this dark, dark vale
In this dark, dark vale

Clouds raining down my tears
Clouds raining down my tears
But I know He is with me
Yes, I know He is with me

He has my life, He has my heart
He has my life, He has my heart
In this dark, dark place
In this dark, dark place

He said He will never leave me
He said He will never forsake me
In this darkness
In this darkness

So I tread slowly forward
Not knowing what lays before me
I take His hand in mine
He takes my hand in His
He leads me slowly forward
Out of this dark, dark vale
Out of this dark, dark vale

And I know that breakthrough is coming
Yes, I know that breakthrough is coming
From this darkness
From this darkness
Because sweet child, His child
Your breakthrough it’s here
Your breakthrough is already here
Your breakthrough is already here

And the way is lined with a flower
Deep red, as only pure blood runs
I am healed and delivered
With salvation that He won

Oh! He led me out
From such unrelenting pain
Out of much hostility
Out of sinful shame
Out of anxious fear
Out of all my pride
Yes, Jesus, He led me
He was always by my side
