Lyrics

The waves crash in, the tide rolls out
It's an angry sea, but there is no doubt
That the lighthouse will keep shining out
To warn a lonely sailor

And the lightning strikes and the wind cuts cold
Through the sailor's bones, through the sailor's soul
'Til there's nothing left that he can hold
Except a rolling ocean

Oh, I am ready for the storm
Yes, sir, ready
I am ready for the storm
I'm ready for the storm

Oh, give me mercy for my dreams
'Cause every confrontation seems
To tell me what it really means
To be this lonely sailor

And when the sky begins to clear
The sun, it melts away my fear
And I cry a silent, weary tear
For those who mean to love me

Oh, I am ready for the storm
Yes, sir, ready
I am ready for the storm
I'm ready for the storm

The distance, it is no real friend
And time will take its time
And You will find that in the end
It brings You me, this lonely sailor

And when You take me by the hand
And You love me, Lord, You love me
And I should have realized
I had no reasons to be frightened

Oh, I am ready for the storm
Yes, sir, ready
I am ready for the storm
Yes, sir, ready
I am ready for the storm
Yes, sir, ready
I am ready for the storm
I'm ready for the storm
