C F C Troublesome waters much blacker than night Am G Are hiding from view the harbor's bright light. C F C Tossed on the turmoil of life's troubled sea Am G C I cried to my saviour, "Have mercy on me."Troublesome waters around me do roll They're rocking my boat and wrecking my soul. Loved ones are drifting and living in sin The treacherous whirlpools are pulling them in. Chorus----- When troublesome waters and rolling so high I lift up my voice and to heaven I cry, "Lord, I am trusting, give guidance to me And steady my boat on life's troubled sea." Chorus-----F C Then gently I'm feeling the touch of His hand Am G Guiding my boat in safely to land C F C Leading the way to heaven's bright shore Am G C Where troublesome waters I'm fearing no more.
