1. Say, where are you going, my brother,
Upon the broad ocean of time?
Are you bound for the land of the blessèd,
A home in fair Canaan’s bright clime?

Steer straight to the lighthouse, my brother,
There’s danger upon the dark wave;
Ask Jesus to keep and to guide you.
He’s able and willing to save.

2. Be sure that the Savior is with thee
Wherever thy life boat may go;
Should you take your life journey without Him,
You’ll sink ’neath the billows of woe. [Refrain]

3. Look not on the lamps that burn dimly,
But look to the light of God’s love;
Look not on the wrecks by the seashore,
But look to the light-house above. [Refrain]
