Representative Text

1 Oh Father, send me a life-boat,
Of love so full and free,
To safely sail the sea of life,
When dangers threaten me;
Sustain me, Lord, in the tempest,
When darkness hides my star,
Then rough winds they will bear me home,
Thro’ the beautiful gates ajar.

2 Oh Father, thou in whose mercy,
Heeds e’en the sparrow’s fall,
Oh save, dear Lord, I perish, for
The breakers drown my call;
Oh Father, send me a life-boat
Of love upon life’s sea;
And take me home to heav’n on high,
Thro’ the beautiful gates ajar.

3 Oh take me out of the darkness,
To mansions fair above,
Where angels sing the glad new song,
And all is peace and love;
Oh Father, send me a life-boat
From shores across the sea;
Let angel sailors guide my boat,
Thro’ the beautiful gates ajar.
