Full Text

1 Out on the billow, lur’d by the tempter,
Grieving the lov’d ones by night and by day;
Turn thee, O lost one, dreaming of pleasure,
Why art thou drifting, still drifting away?

Refrain:
Drifting away, drifting away,
Farther from hope and farther astray;
Out of the light, into the night,
Why art thou drifting, still drifting away?

2 Out on the billow, still thou art drifting,
Farther and farther away on the tide;
Clouds in the distance, darkness around thee,
No one to help thee, and no one to guide. [Refrain]

3 Out on the billow, lonely and weary,
Conscious of danger, O why wilt thou roam?
Lov’d ones are watching, earnestly longing,
Eagerly waiting to welcome thee home. [Refrain]

4 Fly then to Jesus, trust in His mercy,
Hear the glad message, O hear and obey—
“I am thy Refuge, Rock, and Salvation,
I will receive thee; why longer delay?” [Refrain]
