1 We are on the deep, we are sailing to our home
In the land beyond the shores of time,
Where the weary rest, and no sorrows ever come,
In that brighter, better, happier clime.
In the old ship Zion we are sailing on the tide;
Though the waves may dash, and billows roar,
“We will stand the storm,” we will safe at anchor ride,
In the port on Canaan’s peaceful shore.
2 We are on the deep, see our sails how full they swell,
And our standard floating proudly high;
‘Tis the blood-stained banner of King Immanuel,
We will sail beneath it—“life or die.” [Refrain]
3 Are you on the deep, in the sinner’s bark so frail?
You will perish—leave without delay;
Come on board with us, and at once for glory sail,
And be saved while you are called today. [Refrain]
