I like to walk upon the shore

I like to walk upon the shore
Listen to the ocean roar
Feel the warmth of summer sand
Hold a seashell in my hand
I like to leave footprints here
Turn and watch them disappear
As ocean waves come crashing in
To make the shoreline clean again

O Lord Your mercy is like the sea
It washes over marks sins have left in me
O Lord in faithfulness remember them no more
Like the ocean waves that break upon the shore
Like the rolling sea
Wash over me

I like to hear the seagulls cry
See them sail across the sky
Feel the salty ocean breeze
Some comfort’s found in all of these
I like to watch the setting sun
Melt away and colours run
As darkness falls upon the sea
I hear this prayer well up in me
