the shadow that guides me

as i walk upon life's shore..
i catch a glimps of a flitting shadow,
it stays ahead in the oceans roar,
sends thoughts of peaceful meadows.
troubles come rolling like angry waves,
the shadow it calms the seas.
sends thoughts of soldiers,
hiding in caves ,
calling out in prayer jesus please!
so now i pray in earnest despair,
i've given up on a troubled past.
i know he will keep my every care,
and save me from fate i've cast.
Jesus save me from oceans roar,
keep me free from angry waves.
guide me safe to heavens door,
back to the soldiers cave.
