Representative Text

1 In ancient days, when Israel’s host
In darkest bondage lay,
The mighty pow’r of God was shown,
He rolled the sea away.

Refrain:
He rolls the sea away!
He rolls the sea away!
With Jesus ever near,
No foe have I to fear,
He rolls the sea away!

2 The waves of sin swept o’er my soul,
Temptations held their sway;
The Lord spoke peace, and pardon gave,
He rolled the sea away. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ doubts and fears obscure my path,
With Jesus I will stay;
He’ll keep me near His loving heart,
And roll the sea away. [Refrain]

4 Lord Jesus, when in my last hour
I face tow’rd realms of day,
Thy presence then shall pilot me,
And roll the sea away. [Refrain]
