When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
The rivers of sorrow shall not thee o'erflow,
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.
How Firm a Foundation, Hymn #85
Story Behind the Art:
All of us have found or will find ourselves, at some point in our lives, declaring, “Lord, save me”. I think in one way or another, we can all relate to Peter’s predicament of needing to be rescued. No matter how we are sinking under life’s challenges and difficulties, and notwithstanding how far we have sunk, the Savior will reach out and help us if we will but ask. I wanted to convey the despair and, more importantly, the hope that Christ gives us all that He will be there for us. - Simon Dewey
