Representative Text

1 When storms around are sweeping,
When lone my watch I'm keeping,
'Mid fires of evil falling,
'Mid tempters' voices calling,

Remember me, O Mighty One!
Remember me, O Mighty One!

2 When walking on life's ocean,
Control its raging motion;
When from its dangers shrinking,
When in its dread deeps sinking, [Refrain]

3 When weight of sin oppresses,
When dark despair distresses,
All through the life that's mortal
And when I pass death's portal, [Refrain]
