Over the billows drifting, driftingAuthor: James Fraser
Tune: [Over the billows drifting, drifting]
Published in 1 hymnal
This hymn by the Fraser Brothers was suggested on hearing the following incident related: The Mission yacht "Albatross" was sailing through a narrow channel when the wind fell and a strong current set in. As the tide turned the boat drifted, and the crew cast out all the anchors, but found they would not hold, and the yacht was almost driven out of the Sound, narroly escaping collision with another vessel. It was afterwards learned that the bottom was sandy and covered with seaweed.
