Jesus, Saviour, Pilot Me

Verse 1:
Jesus, Saviour, pilot me,
Over life’s tempestuous sea;
Unknown waves before me roll,
Hiding rock and trech’rous shoal;
Chart and compass come from Thee:
Jesus, Saviour, pilot me.

Verse 2:
As a mother stills her child,
Thou canst hush the ocean wild;
Boist’rous waves obey Thy will,
When thou say’st to them “Be still!”
Wondrous Sov’reign of the sea,
Jesus, Saviour, pilot me.

Verse 3:
When at last I near the shore,
And the fearful breakers roar
‘Twixt me and the peaceful rest,
Then, while leaning on Thy breast,
May I hear Thee say to me,
“Fear not, I will pilot thee!”

Rev. Edward Hopper/J.E. Gould
