The In Tide

 Full-flooded bay while tide is in
Cover sleeping stones of calm repose
But waters gone and tide is out
Naked and jagged are rocks exposed

 So come Holy Spirit in as a flood
Cover my sin with the Saviorís blood
Drown my corruption and all my shame
Hide me in the depths of the Saviors name

 Full-flooded bay while tide is in
Oh, cover my Adamís willful pride
Drown every evil besetting sin
Make of the harlot a spotless bride

So come Holy Spirit with holy wave
Not one sinful pleasure I would have you save
Dead all ambition beneath sweet brine above
Surrender volition to the Saviorís love

Full-flooded bay, Oh tide come in
Drown every evil besetting sin
