1 With Christ our Pilot tried and true,
Sail on, sail on!
While sea is calm and skies are blue,
Sail on, sail on!

Refrain:
Sail on, o’er life’s wide sea,
Upon the helm His hand shall ever be;
Sail on, sail on!
O’er rolling foam,
Unto the harbor He guideth us home.
Sail on, sail on, though tempests sweep,
Our Pilot rules, He rules the raging deep;
Sail on, sail on!
Till harbor’s won, He holds the helm,
Sail on, sail on!

2 The Word divine our chart shall be,
Sail on, sail on!
To guide us over life’s wide sea,
Sail on, sail on! [Refrain]

3 Our guiding star a Father’s love,
Sail on, sail on!
It shines from heav’nly heights above,
Sail on, sail on! [Refrain]
