My Life and Way
Like Jared in the water, like Alma oppressed,
My burdens you have lightened, I am truly blessed.
The waves and winds upon me, thy hand my way,
As Peter on the water, I walk this day.
As Nephi I am weak, but thou art strong,
O Lord you are my refuge, my life and song.
As Saul I was blinded but now I see,
O Father thou art the life
As Sarah I endure, trusting in thy care,
O Lord I thank thee for all you share.
Thy grace is sufficient, in thee I rise,
You are the light within my eyes.
Your blessings and goodness are ever near,
I thank you today with a heart sincere.
How great thou art, how loving thy care,
As Alma I declare thou art just and fair.
For the bands of hell by thee are broke,
With joy I accept thy will and yoke.
My footsteps the miracle of thy Holy power,
As Lazarus I was dead but I live this hour.
As Amulek I now submit to thee,
Whatever you ask is what will be.
I leave behind my former home,
And pursue the truth of the seed I've sown.
Not as Lots wife looking behind,
My eyes ahead I shall search and find.
A treasure not of this world below,
For you are the beauty I've come know.
Like Noah I construct a ship divine,
My safety is the truth that you are mine.
Thy commandments and will I shall obey,
Thou art my life, my love, my way!

"But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?" Matthew 14:24-31
"And it came to pass that so great was their faith and their patience that the voice of the Lord came unto them again, saying: Be of good comfort, for on the morrow I will deliver you out of bondage. And he said unto Alma: Thou shalt go before this people, and I will go with thee and deliver this people out of bondage. Now it came to pass that Alma and his people in the night-time gathered their flocks together, and also of their grain; yea, even all the night-time were they gathering their flocks together. And in the morning the Lord caused a deep sleep to come upon the Lamanites, yea, and all their task-masters were in a profound sleep. And Alma and his people departed into the wilderness; and when they had traveled all day they pitched their tents in a valley, and they called the valley Alma, because he led their way in the wilderness. Yea, and in the valley of Alma they poured out their thanks to God because he had been merciful unto them, and eased their burdens, and had delivered them out of bondage; for they were in bondage, and none could deliver them except it were the Lord their God." Mosiah 24:16-21
