184. I'll Stand By Until the Morning

1 Fierce and wild the storm is raging
Round a helpless bark,
On to doom ’tis swiftly driving,
O’er the waters dark!

Joy, behold the Savior,
Joy, the message hear,
"I’ll stand by until the morning,
I’ve come to save you, do not fear."
Yes, I’ll stand by until the morning,
I’ve come to save you, do not fear.

2 Weary, helpless, hopeless seamen
Fainting on the deck,
With what joy they hail their Savior,
As He hails their wreck! [Chorus]

3 On a wild and stormy ocean,
Sinking ’neath the wave,
Souls that perish heed the message,
Christ has come to save! Chorus]

4 Daring death thy soul to rescue,
He in love has come,
Leave the wreck and in Him trusting,
Thou shalt reach thy home! [Chorus]
