1)
The ocean swells with the rising tide
And I cannot see the other side.
My craft is small and the water deep,
But I must cross it before I sleep.

refrain
How wonderful to trust my frail steps
To the One who made the ocean depths;
To the One who makes the wind obey,
My Jesus, who carries me all the way.

2)
As I sail over the bounding waves,
I trust my soul to the One who saves,
Mightier is He than any king,
God, the Maker of everything.

3)
I am never alone, have no fear,
For my Protector is always near.
He guides me through every storm
And shelters me from eternal harm.

1)

       My craft is very small, my Lord,

       Lying safe within its cove,

       But soon I must put out to sea

       Where all the strong winds blow.

       The waves out there are tall and cold;

       My bark may be o’er-swept,

       But if You are my Pilot, Lord,

       My soul will be well-kept.

*********

2)  My life is very frail, my Lord,

       Though I am safe at home,

       But I must leave this cosy nest

       For places more forlorn.

       Beyond my doors are evil snares,

       Temptations and fool’s gold,

       But if You guide me all my days

       My footsteps will be bold.

**********

3)  To step beyond my threshold, Lord,

        I will not fear my ways,

        For You I trust to guide my steps

        And safeguard all my days.

        If I head out in stormy seas

        To shores far from this cove,

         I give to You the captaincy,

         To pilot home my soul.
