Representative Text

1 Tho’ thy path may lead thro’ the world’s great deep,
Tho’ the billows roll o’er the sea,
Yet thy God has promised his child to keep,
Not a wave shall flow over thee.

Chorus:
Not a wave shall flow over thee,
Not a wave shall flow over thee,
Tho’ the billows roll,
God protects thy soul,
Not a wave shall flow over thee.

2 Tho’ affliction sore to thy soul may come,
Let thy faith like a compass be,
For, although the winds make the sea to foam,
Not a wave shall flow over thee. [Chorus]

3 Do not fear at last, when upon the strand
Thou the river of death shall see,
When with Christ you cross to the heav’nly land,
Not a wave shall flow over thee. [Chorus]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856.

Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill.
