Representative Text

1 My soul was tossed by angry waves,
And hope was almost o’er,
But some one whispered, “Jesus saves,”
And now I’m safe ashore!

Refrain:
Safe, safe ashore!
Dreading the storm no more,
Ev’ry danger past, with my Lord at last,
Safe, safe ashore!

2 For endless woe my soul was bound,
But Jesus aw my plight,
And now I stand on solid ground,
And life is glad and bright. [Refrain]

3 In fear I neared the rocks of doom,
And watched the breakers roll,
But now I stand where flowers bloom,
With sunshine in my soul. [Refrain]

4 To Him who saved by love and grace,
And made me glad and free,
My happy soul shall offer praise
Throughout eternity! [Refrain]
