1 Soul, on sin’s wild ocean going
Swiftly on to doom,
See, the warning light is glowing
Clearly through the gloom!
Steer for home! Steer for home!
Drift, O drift no more;
Loving voices bid thee come;
Steer for the homeward shore!
2 Why, for but a sinful leisure,
Miss the happy goal?
Why, for but an earthly pleasure,
Lose thy precious soul? [Refrain]
3 Sure destruction is before thee,
Rock, and swamping wave!
Soon the breakers will be o’er thee,
Then no hand can save. [Refrain]
4 Brother, see, the night is falling!
Haste, to safety come!
Jesus pleadingly is calling:
Steer, O steer for home! [Refrain]
