About the Song
“He Walked On Water” portrays the narrator’s grandfather who had probably left a footprint in the narrator’s heart. The lyrics of the song have shown the great memory he had with his grandfather. The memories shared will not be replaced by anybody. But, one day his grandfather passed away, he cried to God and asked Him to be healed.
The most painful day we encounter in our life is the death of our loved ones. Sometimes we ask God, why he allowed that to happen? First, He will leave us clueless, but as the days pass, we would suddenly realize his purpose. Remember, the person is not owned by us, but by God. God only sent them for us to learn from and to love as God loves him/her.
