Representative Text

1 Tell me, Jesus, tell me, can I safely go,
Where the storms are sweeping and the dark waves flow?
Wilt Thou ever lead me thro’ this world of woe?
Tell me, Jesus, tell me, can I safely go?

Refrain:
Tell me, have I grace to go,
Thro’ this sinful world of woe?
Tell me, have I grace to go,
To go and live forever, where sweet waters flow.

2 Tell me, Jesus, tell me, of that world above,
Where no storm clouds gather, and ‘tis peace and love.
Have I grace to meet those, who sweet peace have made?
Tell me, Jesus, tell me, could sweet hopes e’er fade? [Refrain]

3 Tell me, Jesus, tell me, if I follow on,
Wilt Thou keep me faithful till the crown be won?
If I follow daily, nevermore to roam,
Tell me, Jesus, tell me, wilt Thou lead me home? [Refrain]
