“Let me be Your skipping stone,
Let me be the one
With whom you throw into the deep
and let Your will be done.
Let me skip along the water
and walk with faith like Peter
Let me never fear of failure but
know Your love runs deeper.
So send me out before you, God
behind Your faithful Son.
Send me out into the field
until Your battle’s won.
So throw me into the unkown,
so throw me into fear.
Throw me where I don’t want to go,
but always find You near.
Let my splash into the surface
be the end of Your great throw.
Let the ripples of my sinking
show Your presence midst the flow.
So stretch out wide and stretch our far
but never let me go.
Stretch your arm and skip more stones
‘mong Your children here below.
For You are the Great Potter,
and we are but the clay.
You are the Great Maker,
and we are what you made.
So shape us into skipping stones.
Shape us into ones,
with whom You throw into the deep
and let Your will be done.”
