O Savior! when thy loving hand

Full Text

1. O Savior! when Thy loving hand
Has brought us o’er the sea,
Through perils many, safe to land—
The land we longed to see.

2. Oh, help us, for Thy help we need
Each moment more and more
In perils that we scarcely heed,
More deadly, on the shore.

3. Lord, save us! and the Christian name
Oh, help us pure to keep,
On sea or land, alike the same,
Till we in death shall sleep.

4. Then through Thy merits, washed and clean
From sin’s polluting stain,
In raiment white may we be seen
With all Thy saints to reign.
