Palm trees bending
Sets are heavy
Over dams and over levees
God just sent a letter
For some it breeds anticipation
Talk of permanent vacation
Wise guys read the weather

The Good Book maps the big returning
Fire burns
In the heart's a yearning deeper than the ocean
"Surf's up!" cries the sinking swimmer
Clouds move in, and the light grows dimmer
Resolve in our devotion

A good sailor knows which way the wind blows

The Word is heard
The earth is shaking
Trouble's stirred
The waves are breaking over every nation
But remember, my sons and daughters
Jesus walked upon the water
And faith is our vocation

So we know just where we're headed
The map and compass point to heaven
No time for indecision
Though the water's deep, and the wind, it wails
Batten down the hatch and set the sails
We've got the right provisions

In the meantime, we'll be fishers of men
And our love line will find them and gently reel them in
