Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me
Words: Edward Hopper, 1871
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.”
