We have battled all night Lord

Like Simon Peter and his companions

Against the stormy sea and the violent wind

With the treacherous waves

Breaking into our frail boat

And threatening violence and death

 

We are all adrift at sea

And are paralysed with fear

As chaos and disaster

Stare us in the face

For, abandoned to our own resources

We are powerless and helpless

Before the storm

And are face to face

With the futility

Of our ability

 

Walk over the waters Lord

Calm the violent storm

Come towards our boat

And transform our frightful circumstances

Into a Theophany, an Epiphany

That like Moses in the desert

We may recognise your voice of assurance

In the blazing fire that surrounds us

Like a rampart

And heal our collective fear

Of storms and tornadoes

And earthquakes and wild fires

 

Walk over the waters Lord

March firm on the turbulence

Come towards our boat

And let the stormy sea of disorder and chaos

Be a place of providential encounter

With the One who calms the storm

And stills the sea

Let the turbulent waters

Of armed robbery and banditry

Be the divine milieu

For a privileged revelation

Of the One

Who commands the troubled waters

And walks tall over the abyss of death

 

Walk over the waters Lord

Quieten the sea

Come towards our boat

And take away the tension and strife

That have been our lot in these climes

From the low lands of the Niger Delta

To the high lands of Taraba

And from the forest regions of Sagamu

To the sandy plains of Kano

Calm the storm of ethnic violence

From the Ivory Towers of Ife and Ibadan

To the academic villages of Ekpoma and Abraka

Conquer the whirlwinds of secret cultism

 

Walk over the waters Lord

Let the troubled sea obey your word

Come towards our boat

That from the port city of Lagos

To the capital city of Abuja

And from the commercial city of Onitsha

To the political city of Kaduna

There will be an end

To hired assassinations

Armed robbery and street thuggery

 

Walk over the waters Lord

Rebuke the wind

Come towards our boat

And let the tempestuous waves

Of trials and tribulations

Against which our frail boat

Must battle today

Be the harbinger of the Incarnate One

Who conquers evil

By His majestic presence
