Lyrics: How To Sleep In A Stormy Boat by Amy Speace

Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity feature Amy Speace’s How To Sleep In A Stormy Boat as August song of the month.

Red sky ahead, of the morning sun
And I’ve heard it said, that’s when trouble comes
Have been blown by this wind, and I know this eve
I’ve been out here before, it’s not a math that I need

Show me how to fly in the starless sky
Help me to hold on when there’s no guiding light
Teach me how to sleep, how to sleep in a stormy boat.

I’ve been blown by this love
And I know these ways
There’s no compus on earth
Could guide my way
I still don’t know
but at the end of the day
Is it as simple as this, I want you to stay

Show me how to fly in the starless sky
Help me to hold on when there’s no guiding light
Teach me how to sleep, how to sleep in a stormy boat.

And I’ve been out here too long,
Where it’s dark and deep
Not waiting on words, it’s not words that I need.

Show me how to fly in the starless sky
Help me to hold on when there’s no guiding light
Teach me how to sleep, how to sleep in a stormy boat.
How to sleep in a stormy boat,
How to sleep in a stormy boat.

  1. Sister Annette Kurey says:

    The words of Amy Speaces’ song speak of a longing which most of us are familiar. “Help me to hold on when there’s no guiding light” is one of the hardest times of life. It is here where Jesus calls us to a greater trust in Himself. As we allow Him to teach us and as we learn how to “sleep” in the storm we come closer to God and experience a peace which only He can give. Good job Amy!
