Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

78. Your Pilot's at the Wheel

1 O sailor, on life’s troubled sea,
Why should you fear the storm?
The shore’s in view where you will be
Safe from all dread alarm.

Refrain:
Then never fear the billows’ roar,
Nor danger ever feel;
You’ll safely reach the golden shore,
Your pilot’s at the wheel.

2 O sailor, trust your all to him,
Nor heed the robbing wave;
Look up, tho’ skies be dark and dim,
And trust the Lord to save. [Refrain]

3 O sailor, see your shining light,
The port is drawing near;
And loved ones robed in purest white
Await your coming there. [Refrain]
