The Rebel Black Dot Song o' the Lord's Day

Sandi Patty, "Bridge Over Troubled Water" from Everlasting (The Last Angry Man)

Commentary: I echo Miss Patty in re-contextualizing "Bridge Over Troubled Water" into a Christian milieu. In today's Gospel reading, St. Peter walks on water due to his trust in Our Blessed Savior, then begins to sink beneath the waves as doubt creeps in, but has faith enough to cry out for Jesus to save him, which He does immediately. Lord, help us ever to recall that You are our refuge & sure rescue in time of trouble; You never promised this life would be without trouble, only that You would be there to see us safely to shore if only we trust in You.
