1 Dark is the night, and the waves run high,
Steady, brothers, steady;
Hid are the stars, and the storm-clouds fly,
Be ready, my brothers, be ready.
Captains have we who deliv’rance will bring,
Darkness or daylight is one to our King,
He will deliver, so joyfully sing,
All glory to Jesus our Savior.

Refrain:
Steady, steady, steady,
Fear ye not the billows rolling high;
Steady, steady, steady,
There’s a star illumes the darkest sky;
Storms will soon be past,
The harbor gained at last,
All glory be to Jesus our Savior.

2 Swift on the wings of the roaring wind,
Steady, brothers, steady;
Fly thro’ the night and the daylight find,
Be ready, my brothers, be ready.
Daylight shall open her windows of gold,
Safety and Paradise we shall behold,
Shout ye for gladness, O hearts, true and bold,
All glory to Jesus our Savior. [Refrain]

3 Steer by the chart, and no harm can come,
Steady, brothers, steady;
Sail thro’ the storm and we’ll all reach home,
Be ready, my brothers, be ready.
Comrades have we who are safe on the shore—
Comrades awaiting to greet us once more,
Comrades from whom we will part nevermore,
All glory to Jesus our Savior. [Refrain]
