Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

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]
