Over and over I stood upon the shore;
Over and over I said I would doubt no more;
But as the sea came rolling in,
In boundless waves that cleanse from sin,
I doubted their saving power.


Over and over, like a mighty sea,
Comes the love of Jesus,
Rolling over me.

Over and over I’ve heard my Savior’s voice;
Over and over He said, Make Me your choice;
Now face the waves and tread the sea,
Look up in faith and follow Me
I answered, I’ll prove their power.


Over and over I’ll sing this glorious song,
Over and over before the gathering throng;
How o’er my heart the sea prevailed,
And how His love has never failed,
For ever I’ll trust His power;
