Lyrics

 
The Tide Is Turning

The shifting sand
And restless sea
Deserted shores
Just you and me
You take my hand
We
do not speak
Peace and quiet
Is all we need

Where the bright blue sky
Meets the deep blue sea
Out on the horizon
It’s all too clear to me
The sun is burning
The
tide is turning
Oh~Oh Glory be

Right where the sky
Meets the deep blue sea
Something out there’s luring me
The sun is burning bright
I
nside I am churning
Footprints fading
In the shifting sand
Marching on
To the Promised Land
Oh~Oh
The Tide Is Turning

Oh~Oh
T
he sun is burning 
Oh~Oh
I
nside I’m churning
No axe to grind
No cross to bear
It’s not my time
But I’m almost there
Oh~Oh
T
he Tide Is Turning

You squeeze my hand
And hold me tight
You say 'Are you okay’
I say ‘I’m doing alright’
As we make our way
Through the shifting sand
Oh~Oh
The Tide Is Turning
Oh~Oh
The Tide Is Turning

Inspired by a winter break in Portugal..
As soon as I stood on the sand I knew I was going to write this song.
The shoreline was deserted and I was completely overwhelmed by God's presence.
