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!

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]
