Troublesome waters around me do roll
They're rockin' my boat and wreckin' my soul
Loved ones are driftin' and livin' in sin
The treacherous whirlpools are pullin' them in

When troublesome waters are rollin' so high
I lift up my voice and to heaven I cry
Lord I am trustin' give guidance to me
And steady my boat on life's troubled sea.

Troublesome waters are blacker than night
Hiding from view the harbor light bright
Out on the ocean I seem as a speck
Awful sea monsters are waiting my wreck

Gently I feel the touch of his hand
Guiding my boat to that better land
Leading way to heaven's bright shore
Troublesome waters I'm fearing no more

Troublesome waters around me now roll
Rocking my boat and tempting my soul
Loved ones are drifting and living in sin
Treacherous whirlpools are pulling them in

Sin waves are tossing and dashing so high
Over this noise you hear my sad cry
Lord I am trusting show mercy to me
Steady my lifeboat while I am at sea
