When thou passest through the waters


“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”

Isaiah 43:2, KJV


God promises to be with us as we pass through each day. He could have just given us bread to nourish us, but He goes beyond that and walks with us.


“When thou passest 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 hath said it,

He, the faithful God and true:

“When thou comest to the waters

Thou shalt not go down, BUT THROUGH.”


Seas of sorrow, seas of trial,

Bitterest anguish, fiercest pain,

Rolling surges of temptation

Sweeping over heart and brain –

They shall never overflow us

For we know His word is true;

All His waves and all His billows

He will lead us safely through.


Threatening breakers of destruction,

Doubt’s insidious undertow,

Shall not sink us, shall not drag us

Out to ocean depths of woe;

For His promise shall sustain us,

Praise the Lord, whose Word is true!

We shall not go down, or under,

For He saith, “Thou passest THROUGH.”
