Representative Text

1 O’er the ocean, dark and gloomy,
Thro’ the raging storms that roar;
We are sailing home to glory,
Where the tempests beat no more;
We have storms and gales to weather
Thro’ the darkest clouds that form,
But with Jesus in the vessel,
We will smile at the storm.

Refrain:
Yes, with Jesus in the vessel
We will smile at the storm;
Yes, with Jesus in the vessel
We will smile at the storm.

2 Tho’ our way is dark and dreary,
And the wind is fierce and strong,
Tho’ our hands grow faint and weary,
This wild tempest won’t be long;
We will sail thro’ storm and danger,
Thro’ the darkest clouds that form,
And with Jesus in the vessel,
We will smile at the storm. [Refrain]

3 O’er the dark and stormy ocean
We will sail at His command,
Bravely face the wild commotion,
Till we reach the better land.
Courage, then, come wind and weather,
Come the darkest clouds that form,
For with Jesus in the vessel,
We will smile at the storm. [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
