The Sea Will Rise

The Sea Will Rise

lyrics by Hannah Asfeldt

 

The world is howling and there is no light around. The wild storm magnifies the lack of hope that’s found.
Our cries distinguished not in wind that never ceases. For if we give up hope we’ll surely fall to pieces.

There is no submission in eyes made of mirrors
Lungs that hold their breathe will soon turn to glass

The sea will rise, the sea will rise, the sea will rise but we will not sink
Because in your eyes, in your eyes, in your eyes we are worth saving.
In your voice, in your voice, in your voice we’ll find promises of what’s to be;
With you we’ll breathe.
The sea will rise, the sea will rise, the sea will rise but we will sail on
In our eyes, in our eyes, in our eyes you’re a faithful God
Though we pray, though we pray, though we pray for an olive branch
We’ll sail straight through
We’ll breathe with you

Lord your faithfulness will lead me through these waters
Lord your faithfulness will lead me in the truth
I will gladly drown to show the world you chose us
I will gladly drown to show that I choose you

Though there is no silver lining in our vision
You have made the promise no more waves

The sea will rise, the sea will rise, the sea will rise but we will not sink
Because in your eyes, in your eyes, in your eyes we are worth saving.
In your voice, in your voice, in your voice we’ll find promises of what’s to be;
With you we’ll breathe.
The sea will rise, the sea will rise, the sea will rise but we will sail on
In our eyes, in our eyes, in our eyes you’re a faithful God
Though we pray, though we pray, though we pray for an olive branch
We’ll sail straight through
We’ll breathe with you

You baptize us when you bring the floods.
Hear a voice cry out, begging pleading “Father let us drown”
You baptize us when you command the floods.
Hear the world cry out begging “Father cleanse us in your blood”

The sea will rise, the sea will rise, the sea will rise but we will not sink
Because in your eyes, in your eyes, in your eyes we are worth saving.
In your voice, in your voice, in your voice we’ll find promises of what’s to be;
With you we’ll breathe.
The sea will rise, the sea will rise, the sea will rise but we will sail on
In our eyes, in our eyes, in our eyes you’re a faithful God
Though we pray, though we pray, though we pray for an olive branch
We’ll sail straight through
We’ll breathe with you
