  1.  Jesus, Savior, pilot me over life’s tempestuous sea;
      Unknown waves before me roll, hiding rock and treacherous shoal.
      Chart and compass come from Thee; Jesus, Savior, pilot me.
  2.  As a mother stills her child, Thou canst hush the ocean wild;
      Boisterous waves obey Thy will, when Thou sayest to them, “Be still!”
      Wondrous Sovereign of the sea, Jesus, Savior, pilot me.
  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.”
