Representative Text

1 When shades of night are falling,
Over life’s restless sea,
Lord, be Thou near
To comfort and cheer
And tenderly pilot me.

2 Many the shoals around me,
Many the rocks I see.
Stand by my side;
Oh, be Thou my Guide,
And constantly pilot me.

3 Soon is the voyage ended,
Soon I at home shall be.
Storms soon shall cease;
To harbors of peace
Thou safely wilt pilot me.
