1. See yon bark amid the breakers,
Struggling hard to reach the land;
See those brave and noble sailors,
As they labor hand to hand:
Lightnings flashing, thunders roaring,
Dangers threaten all around;
Yet their courage does not fail them,
Hoping safety may be found.

Saved! oh, blessèd thought to cherish;
Saved! we see the golden shore;
Clinging to the cross of Jesus,
There is safety evermore.

2. Soon the storm begins to weaken,
Light breaks forth, the tempest’s past;
Onward speeds the noble vessel,
Onward, onward, saved at last:
Then those hearts are filled with gladness,
Fear and sorrow reign no more;
Saved from shipwreck, free from danger,
Saved! yes, saved! the storm is o’er.[Refrain]

3. Oh! how oft the storms o’ertake us,
As through life we wend our way;
Clouds of darkness hang above us,
Shutting out the sun’s bright ray:
Then we lift our eyes to Heaven,
Gazing t’ward th’eternal day;
And the light grows brighter, brighter,
Ent’ring Heaven—saved for aye![Refrain]
