Walking Over the Water

This song is by Mat Kearney and appears on the compilation Mercyland: Hymns for the Rest of Us (2012).

I raised my glass toward heaven
On that night that she was born
Praised your name and gave you thanks
And I bought the house a round
She came like a thief of glory
Stole my pain and gave me life
These tears I thought were long, long gone
Fell like rivers from my eyes

Was that you walking over the water
When the sunlight that came pouring through the cracks
Was that you shining in the face my a daughter
Never thought you'd come again to take me back

Raised my eyes toward heaven
She was floatin' down our stairs
Backpack and a bright red skirt
And a river of long black hair
He came like a thief of glory
And he stole her heart that day
Ever since she started crawlin'
I always knew she'd sail away

Was that you walking over the water
Well, I watched my baby slippin' through the cracks
Walked the isle and gave away my daughter
Never thought there'd come a day she would look back

Raised my fist toward heaven
From that dark forsaken road
Blue lights flashed on broken glass
The siren left me cold
He came like a thief of glory
And he left a finger prints
Should I thank you, should I blame you
In a storm that won't relent

Was that you walking over the water
While the ocean came pouring through the cracks
Was that you calling out Adam's daughter
I never thought you'd come again to take her back

You always said you'd come again to take us back
