Ere the tide of life is ebbing

Ere the tide of life is ebbing

Full Text

1 Ere the tide of life is ebbing,
Ere its sands are running low,
Turn we now to Christ our Savior,
That His peace we here may know.

Christ is ever kind and tender,
He will guard us, He will save;
Let us never from Him wander,
For His life for us He gave.

2 Then, dear Shepherd, close unfold us
In Thy constant, loving care;
We are poor, and weak, and sinful,
Keep us safe from every snare. [Refrain]

3 Death may daily watch our footsteps,
Life may swiftly steal away,
But we know our God will guide us
Through the night to endless day. [Refrain]
