Representative Text

1 Saviour, pilot me o’er life’s stormy sea,
Thou art Master of the ocean wild.
With Thy mighty hand Thou dost worlds command;
Jesus, guard and guide Thy trusting child.

Guard me, guide me,
Safely o’er all life’s stormy main;
Guard me, guide me,
Till in glory with my Lord I reign.

2 Dark the shadows lie, hark the winds are high,
Yet the tempest must obey Thy will.
Tho’ the billows roll, still Thou dost control,
Say Thou to the waters, “Peace, be still.” [Refrain]

3 We shall anchor cast, when safe home at last,
In the blessed port within the vail.
No more storms of night; never fading light;
No more perils for my bark so frail. [Refrain]
