Jesus is waiting for me

Representative Text

1 Long sailing on life's troubled sea,
In tempest, in storm and thro' calm,
I yielded and anchored at last
In Jesus the crucified Lamb.

Chorus:
Hallelujah, 'tis done,
My soul now is free;
I am saved by His blood,
And Jesus is waiting for me.

2 From over the waters so dark,
The cry of the Savior I heard.
He called me in accents so sweet,
I yielded, obeying His word. [Chorus]

3 Now resting so calmly in Him,
My voyage shall ever be sweet,
With Him at the helm I am safe,
Whatever the danger I meet. [Chorus]
