Music by: Scott Krippayne
Dramatization by Janelle Clendenon
On stage have a sail boat and long light blue, medium blue, and white cloth or plastic laid out the length of the stage, as desired. Stage hands (minor actors) will be stationed on either side of each length of color. When indicated by the color described, they will lift that color length and move it up and down to demonstrate the action of the waves described. Jesus figure is wearing white. Child figure is wearing a color that stands out such as red, green, or purple. Dark figure wears black.
All who sail the sea of faith find out before too long
Light blue lifted up like sky (top corner held high, bottom corners touching floor or hanging down)
How quickly blue skies can grow dark and gentle winds grow strong
Light blue lowered, all corners held, flapped like waves. And darker blue held up like sky (top corner held high, bottom corners touching floor or hanging down)
Suddenly fear is like white water pounding on the soul
Add white, a little higher than the light blue, all corners held tight and flapped furiously like white cap waves
Still we sail on knowing that our Lord is in control
Jesus figure enters scene and stands behind boat
Sometimes He calms the storm with a whispered peace be still
Jesus figure holds up hands. White and light blue stop flapping and lower to floor. Darker blue settles to floor.
He can settle any sea but it doesn’t mean He will
Lt blue, white and dark blue raised and ready
Sometimes He holds us close and lets the wind and waves go wild
Lt blue, white, and dark blue, all corners held tightly, flapped vigorously like waves
Sometimes He calms the storm and other times He calms His child
Child figure enters. Jesus figures opens arms, inviting a hug. They hug. Meanwhile waves of all colors continue to flap.
