Representative Text

1 The night is dark, the winds are strong,
Who’s at the helm?
To steer the ship of life along,
Who’s at the helm?

Refrain:
When skies are glowing,
When storms are blowing,
Why should we fear when Christ is near?
He’s at the helm.

2 O child of God, be not afraid,
He’s at the helm;
Thor’ cloud and sunshine, light and shade,
He’s at the helm. [Refrain]

3 Trust Him, when high the billows roll,
He’s at the helm;
He knows the rocks, the hidden shoals,
He’s at the helm. [Refrain]

4 Some day the storms will all be past,
He’s at the helm;
He’ll land us safe in port at last,
He’s at the helm. [Refrain]
