You heard about me in Sunday school
You memorized “I can do all things.”
“Come out of the boat” the teacher explained
as she moved him along on her paper water.
Now you’ve entered the real world
You’ve got some money for big toys!
The waves are moving faster
Things are going your way
You’re at it hard with the big boys!
Then one day He said “Follow me.
Leave your nets to the others!”
Somewhere along the way
You got out of the boat
Now you think that you’re going under
Will you trust me with paper water?
So I can show you what’s real
Will you let go an let me, Peter?
I’ve got this thing under control
Let me take you to My dimension.
Let me blow your theory.
This ocean’s bigger than you’ve imagined
I’m so much bigger than paper water!
