The Captain’s Hat

The captain’s hat just lay there for the longest time
before I tried it on

But, when I did, it seemed to fit
and I launched at the first light of dawn

I'd stand at life’s helm and try to hold a true course
as the winds pushed me this way and that

then I learned that by faith I could just step aside
and let JESUS wear the CAPTAIN'S HAT
