The first song I ever wrote……
As the tide washes over the sand

A                          D           A
As the tide washes over the sand
.                              D        E
So your troubles will all be washed away
.          A               D                   A
By the grace of the Lord’s saving hand
.               D           E        A
You’ll be brought unto the day.

Chorus
A           D                           E
For He loves you, yes He loves you
.             D                           A
And He wants you by His side
.             D                        E
Yes He loves you, really loves you
.              D            E       A
And His love will never die

So take heart in the Gospel received
Let Him lead you down that path to life
Come to Him with your sorrow and grief
Let Him fill you up inside.

When you come to the end of the road
Full of joy and gladness you will be
For the Saviour you’ve come to adore
Waits for you in majesty.
