Representative Text

1 The sea is wildly tossing,
And often clothed with gloom,
On which we're swiftly crossing
To our eternal home.

Over the sea, over the sea,
Gracious Saviour, pilot me;
Over the sea, over the sea,
Spirit kind, my guardian be;
Over the sea, wherever I roam,
Father above, Oh, bring me home,
Under the bright celestial dome.

2 We've many a foe to conquer,
And many a storm to face,
Ere we in heaven may anchor,
And sing redeeming grace. [Refrain]

3 Though nature in commotion
Defy our power and skill,
Our Jesus rules the ocean,
And bids the winds be still. [Refrain]

4 Sail on then, comrades, boldly,
And make God's word your chart;
Do every duty nobly,
With joyful, trusting heart. [Refrain]

5 We'll float the gospel banner,
And guard it with our life,
And shout at last, "Hosanna,"
Victorious in the strife. [Refrain]
