Notes: The signs between "||:" and ":||" are to be repeated.
DROWN - DH [A dot], PO > signer, FO > NDS, puts thumb between fingers of NDH , PO down, FO > DS, and DH descends.
BY-A-HAIR - [F] mimes pulling out a hair to mean a close call.
NURTURE - 2h)[B], PO down are held high and swoop down while supinating and then rise up again as if helping something mature.
MANY-LOOK-TO-Heaven - (2h) move FT to point to Heaven.
CRASH-ON-ROCKS - NDH [B], PO > DS, FO up, acts as the surface of the shore's cliffs and DH [5wg] is the waves approaching, crashing up the cliffs and receding.
REALLY-WANT - the sign WANT but shaken back and forth to show intensity.
1. I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore,
Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more,
But the Master of the sea, heard my despairing cry,
From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.
Refrain: Love lifted me! Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help
Love lifted me!
2. All my heart to Him I give, ever to Him I'll cling
In His blessèd presence live, ever His praises sing,
Love so mighty and so true, merits my soul's best songs,
Faithful, loving service too, to Him belongs.
3. Souls in danger look above, Jesus completely saves,
He will lift you by His love, out of the angry waves.
He's the Master of the sea, billows His will obey,
He your Savior wants to be, be saved today.
