21. Art Thou Drifting?

1 Oh! my brother, art thou drifting?
Drifting tow'rd a sea?
From whose shore no bark returneth,
'Tis Eternity.

Chorus:
Oh! my brother, art thou drifting,
Drifting to eternity?
Oh! my brother, art thou drifting,
Drifting to eternity?

2 At its mouth lie rocks tremendous,
Blacker than despair,
Many a noble bark, my brother,
Has been shipwreck'd there. [Chorus]

3 Hark! the wild white waves are foaming,
Hungry, fierce and bold,
O'er the shattered vessel dashing,
Dreadful, icy, cold. [Chorus]

4 But beyond those raging billows,
Lies a happy shore,
Where the saints redeemed thro' Jesus,
Dwell for evermore. [Chorus]

5 Oh! my friend, thy bark shall never
Reach that happy shore,
Till the Lord becomes your Pilot:
He will guide thee o'er. [Chorus]

6 Call Him with entreaty urgent,
Call Him near thy side,
Then o'er roughest, darkest billows,
Safely thou shalt glide. [Chorus]
