“Let the Waters Rise” by Mikeschair

This song is one that I have heard a million times but has taken on new meaning the past few weeks.  The lyrics were brought to my attention (because remember half of the time I just sing along with songs without really hearing what the song is saying.  So it REALLY is God getting me to listen to the lyircs when I post songs on here!!) by a new friend and blog reader…


“Let the Waters Rise” by Mikeschair

Don't know where to begin
It's like my world's caving in
And I tried but I can't control my fear
Where do I go from here

Sometimes it's so hard to pray
You feel so far away
I am willing to go where You want me to
God I trust You

There's a raging sea
Right in front of me
Wants to pull me in
Bring me to my knees
So let the waters rise
If you want them to
I will follow You
I will follow You
I will follow You

I will swim in the deep
Cuz You'll be next to me
You're in the eye of the storm and the calm of the sea
You're never out of reach

God You know where I've been
You were there with me then
You were faithful before
You'll be faithful again
I'm holding Your hand


God Your love is enough
You will pull me through
I'm holding on to You
God your love is enough
I will follow You
I will follow You

Listen to it here


  1. This is truly a work of God that you posted this... I actually looked up the artist and lyrics of this song at work on Friday. Oh how I long for someone to pour my heart out to... And as I talk with God, I know He is listening... but I just yearn for someone to hold me while I am crying... for someone to show me how all of this will be ok. I apologize for unloading on your blog... I just felt like you would understand.

  2. I love this song, but it's always awesome to read the full words, makes me love it even more! Thanks for sharing! That second paragraph is so hard to say but so true of my life!

  3. I love this song as well---it has meant so much to me in my grief journey. The idea of total surrender, allowing the "waters" of life to completely cover us and trusting Him to pull us out.

  4. One of the lead singers of this group lives in our building right under us! He & his wife are so sweet!!! Jarod & I lOVE this song too.
