05. Sailing on a Ship

Cannons
by Phil Wickham



 

A voice is on the wind
It calls me further in
Iím heading deeper into Your heart
Your mark is on my chest
My sails filled with your breath
You guide me by the light of the stars

Iím sailing on a ship thatís bound for life
I wrestle with the wind against the tide
I leave it all behind to each for more
Iím sailing on to Your golden shore

Though skies go blue to grey
And Iím thrown from wave to wave
You still will hear these lungs singing hard
With every storm I face
I find a greater grace
That pulls me deeper into Your heart

Iím sailing on a ship thatís bound for life
I wrestle with the wind against the tide
I leave it all behind to each for more
Iím sailing on
To where the waterís running sweet and bright
The sun is rising in the eastern sky
I leave it all behind to reach for more
Iím sailing on to Your golden shore




Behind the Song:
"I grew up loving the Chronicles of Narnia, and one of my favorite books in that series is called ďThe Voyage of the Dawn TreaderĒ. This song was inspired by that story. Itís about a group of people who set off from the shores of Narnia in search of some long lost kings who sailed off in the same direction years before. Thereís also rumors that if you sail far enough east youíll get to Aslanís (Jesusí) countryÖ Heaven. One of the characters on the boat is this mouse named Reepicheep. This mouse was given a promise when he was young that one day heíll reach Aslanís country should he continue heading east, and ultimately, this song is about him. Well, itís actually about usÖ peopleÖ believers. Reepicheep just gives us a great picture of our own lives. See, out of all the kings and powerful men on the journey the one who never seems to loose heart is the mouse, the one with the promise. We as Christians have been given a promise as well, a promise that once we are covered by the love of Jesus that nothing can separate us from it. And one day we will be with Him because of that love, and nothing can take that promise away from us. This is such a source of comfort and strength for me during the ďstormsĒ of life." - Phil Wickham
