Representative Text

1 Out on the deep, on a starless deep,
In the midst of the billow’s roar,
Out on the deep, in a slender barque,
That will sink e’er you reach the shore.

Refrain:
Speed to the life-boat! quick, to the life-boat!
List, while warning voices call;
Speed to the life-boat! quick, to the life-boat!
Come, there is room for all.

2 Out on the deep, on a treacherous deep,
And alone, with no hand to guide,
Out on the deep, and a storm is nigh
That will break o’er the rolling tide. [Refrain]

3 Turn from your course to the beams of hope,
As they shine from the light-house tow’r,
Turn to the arm of redeeming love,
And be saved by its gentle power. [Refrain]

4 Haste, while the time and your strength remain,
You can trust to your barque no more,
See how it sails by the winds are torn,
It will sink ere you gain the shore. [Refrain]
