Savior, on the sea of life
Be Thou my Beacon bright
To warn me of the rocks of strife
That lurk just out of sight.
Be Thou my Anchor, Lord I pray
That I may stady stand
Trusting in Thee by night, by day
Held firm in Thy steadfast hand.
Be Thou my Compass and my Chart
To guide me on my way,
For as Thou dwellest in my heart
Thy word shall be my stay.
And when my course is set, dear Lord,
Do Thou my mainsail fill
-For no sailing ship could e'er afford
To sail 'gainst the wind's strong will.
Yea, Savior, on the sea of life,
Be Thou my captain, crew,
Yea, every part command and be
my life, the ocean, too!
