friendship poem

Jesus, Captain of Life's Sea

I have a friend in Jesus
Who guides me through the gale
A first mate and a skipper
Who helps me to set sail.

He offers strength and guidance
A helmsman at the wheel
An ever-steady beam of light
A fortress made of steel.

He's the master of the ocean
My refuge and my rock
A harbor that I turn to
My anchor at life's dock.

He's a mighty sailing warrior
A helping hand indeed
A pilot through the churning waves
He meets my every need.

He's the One I always run to
When the waves won't let me be
The lighthouse that I turn to
On a rough and troubled sea.

He's a smoothly sailing vessel
A refuge from the storm
The gentle breeze that sends me to
An island, sweet and warm.

He's a brave and fearless skipper
A shelter from the heat
Water when I'm thirsty
A vessel filled with wheat.

He's a sure and steady sailor
My Captain on life's sea
No matter where I journey
He goes along with me.
