Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) - Hillsong United




The Experience: You bite off more than you can chew, but you never live up to your full potential. Who can guarantee that you'll be happy? Who can promise trust without borders?

Music Video: Still waiting...

Meaning of Oceans (Where Feet May Fail): Taya Smith's vocasl start off on a tentative, half-doubting step out onto the water. It doesn't turn into a real leap of faith until the drums come in and she really turns it on at the line You are mine. After that it's another long crescendo to the second and You are mine, and a cakewalk from there out. The message? We all know that life is full of doubts. But too many people try to swim it on their own... When oceans rise, when feet may fail and fear surrounds you, the only real safety and strength lies with the person who charted your course in the first place. You've never failed and You won't start now.

Ask Yourself: Have you ever reached your own limits, but still wanted to go further?


LYRICS:

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You've never failed and You won't start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

oh-oh-oh-ohhh

And You are mine

oh-oh-oh-ohhh

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior
[x6]

I will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine
