The Christian Submariner (Ode) by Sing4Jesus!
The deep blue ocean has called him away.
to a home underneath the sea
far away from his loved ones
a submarine is where he will be.
He joined the Navy after leaving school
cos his love for country was in his heart
saying goodbye to friends and family
for naval training he did righteously depart.
Now he is a proud and dedicated sailor
who will always put his country first
apart from his love for Jesus Christ
as for our Lord he hungers and hugely thirsts.
He sails around all the world's Islands
he will be out at sea for several years
friends and family will surely miss him so
saying goodbye brings them oh so many tears
He will spend many many months out at sea
training and diving under the ocean
waiting for those loving letters from home
always praying to Jesus, welling up with godly emotion.
How can we tell him in our kindly words
how proud we are of you in our hearts
even on our knees in front of Jesus's Cross
we arenât surprised when a teardrop starts.
With the good Lords kindness and willingness
we shall all see each other once again
but if the Lord does call me home in the meantime
I will be waiting for you in Heaven then.
Every day that you are away from us
we shall worship Jesus and have sing-alongs
shouting Hallelujah out to the Lord
and keep praising Him with our righteous songs.
