1 O tempest-tossed sailor on time’s mighty sea,
Let this message bring comfort and cheer;
A light o’er the billows is shining for thee,
And the heavenly harbor is near.

The heavenly harbor is near,
The heavenly harbor is near;
Tho’ the fierce storms assail let your faith never fail,
For the heavenly harbor is near.

2 Not far o’er the waves does that beacon light burn,
Which glows bright at the Father’s command;
There will soon come the rest for which weary souls yearn,
In the peace of eternity’s strand. [Refrain]

3 A little while longer to breast the strong tide
Which the wild wind is cresting with foam,
And then into sunlight and calm thou wilt glide,
To be moored in the haven of home. [Refrain]
