Representative Text

1 One ship drives east and one drives west,
By the self-same wind that blows;
‘Tis the set of the sail and not the gale
Which tells the way it goes.

Chorus:
I’ve set my sail for heaven,
I’ev set my soul to go thro’;
Tho’ stormy gale my barque assail,
I shall reach the harbor land.

2 Like the waves of the sea are the gales of fate,
As onward we journey thro’ life;
‘Tis the set of the soul which determines the goal,
And not the storm or strife. [Chorus]

3 At my helm stands the Pilot of Galilee,
He will safely guide me thro’;
He my friend and my constant helper will be,
Till the golden gate I view. [Chorus]
