52. Jesus at the Helm

1 Frail is my bark, and stormy is the ocean;
How can I hope to stem the rushing tide?
How can I face the billows’ wild commotion?
Dangers are theat’ning me on every side.

With Jesus at the helm, I shall journey safely over,
Though the storm is raging and the billows foam;
With Jesus at the helm, I shall journey safely over,
And find a refuge from the storm when Heav’n is my home.

2 Though weak my faith, there’s One whose love unfailing
Will cast a brightness over sight so dim;
His strength, for all my frailties still availing,
Will make me feel the love I owe to Him. [Refrain]

3 Frail is my bark, but Jesus is beside me,
E’en through the night I see His glorious form;
With Him to cheer, to strengthen and to guide me,
My soul will calmly brave the darkest storm. [Refrain]
