Representative Text

1 The tide of Jesus’ mighty love,
Is at its flood tonight;
Beneath, around us and above,
Behold it at its height.

O shipwrecked sailor out at sea,
Behold heav’n’s beacon light,
And on the floodtide of God’s love,
Come safely into night.

2 Come in, come in, trust thou thy bark,
To waves that God controls;
Steer t’ward His beacon thro’ the dark,
The port of pardoned souls. [Refrain]

3 O haste to catch the fav’ring wind,
Turn thou thy bark t’ward shore;
And leave the dang’rous deep behind
Forever, evermore. [Refrain]

4 Make haste, O soul before the tide
Sets out again to sea;
Let Christ across the waters wide,
Tonight thy pilot be. [Refrain]
