Ocean Floor


The mistakes I've made, that caused pain; I could have done without, all my selfish thoughts
All my pride, the things; I hide You have forgot about

They're all behind you, they`ll never find you
They're on the ocean floor, your sins are forgotten
They're on the bottom, of the ocean floor

My misdeeds, all my greed; All the things that haunt me now
They're not a pretty sight to see; But they`re wiped away
By a mighty mighty wave; A mighty mighty wave

They're all behind you, they`ll never find you
They're on the ocean floor, your sins are forgotten
They're on the bottom, of the ocean floor

Your sins are erased; And they are no more; They're out on the ocean floor

Take them away, to return no more; Take them away, to the ocean floor
To the ocean floor, to the ocean floor

They're all behind you, they`ll never find you; They're on the ocean floor, your sins are forgotten
They're on the bottom, of the ocean floor

Your sins are erased; And they are no more; They're out on the ocean floor

Your sins are forgotten; They're on the bottom; Of the ocean floor

Your sins are erased; And they are no more; They're out on the ocean floor

Ocean Floor by Audio Adrenalin

Sometimes it seems like this church kid never had an altar experience. No drama to put behind me. No history to try to erase.
And then there are the days; like today, when the reality of my state of grace washes over me...
My sins are forgotten, they’re on the bottom; out on the ocean floor.

Profound. As a church kid who raised a church kid I understand the feelings, but this puts it all into perspective. Good post.

Sara,
You are raising church kids.

I am so jealous of church kids, I feel like I am struggling because of lessons I should have already learned...

I was a church kid - raised by a church kid. I still walked away and had to come back - the prodigal.

This song --a favorite of mine!

God's grace is the same grace - no matter what the sin --church kid sin or non-church kid sin.

Great Post Sara!

I never heard this song, but I felt this feeling. I can't remember a time I wasn't in church, and so were my kids and so is my grandson. But so much we take for granted...and had to find out for ourselves. Makes Grace even more amazing. Beautiful.
