Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
 Standing at the water's edge
I dropped my dreams when I dropped my nets
No hesitation, no regrets I followed You
But that was then
And this is now

You washed my feet and You changed my name
I swore I'd never be the same
But just like the tides, I guess people change 'Cause that was then
And this is now

I wish I could go back but I don't know how
I remember when I stood my ground I swore I'd never let You down
I want to be that man again But that was then
And this is now (Whoa)
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa

I watched the blind man lift his head
And look his Savior in the eyes
I heard a dead man take a breath Dropped to my knees as I watched him rise
And I felt the sea beneath my feet
As I stepped out on the angry waves
But You saw the storm raging within You reached out and calmed me then
But this is now

I wish I could go back but I don't know how
I remember when I stood my ground I swore I'd never let You down
I want to be that man again But that was then
And this is now

Just when I thought my sin has closed the door
I see my Savior standing on the shore With arms wide open
Just like the first time You called my name
You said that was then
And this is now

My child, I bore your cross, I wore your crown When you couldn't come to me, my love came down
So take My hand, I'll lead you out
'Cause that was then
And this is now

My child, I bore your cross, I wore your crown You couldn't come to me so my love came down
Take my hand, I'll lead you out
You'll never be that man again 'Cause that was then
And this is now (Whoa)
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
