1 Out on sin’s ocean the careless are drifting,
Far from the beacon that leadeth aright;
Servants of Jesus, your voices be lifting,
Calling them back from the darkness of night.
See! they are drifting, your brothers are drifting,
See! they are tossing on sin’s dreadful wave!
Like to a trumpet your voices be lifting,
Call them to Jesus, the mighty to save.
2 Darkness and danger are surely before them,
Farther and farther they’re drifting away;
Forward! my brothers, to warn and implore them,
Call them to Jesus, lest farther they stray. [Refrain]
3 Call to them, brothers, their barks to be turning,
Point to the beacon of safety and light;
Point to the beacon for wanderers burning,
Lighting the pathway to Edenland bright. [Refrain]
