Jesus Savior, pilot me

Melody - Pilot

John Bowring, 1792-1872

1. Jesus Savior, pilot me
Over life's tempestuous sea;
Unknown waves before me roll,
Hiding rock and treacherous shoal;

2. Chart and compass came from Thee;
Jesus, Savior, pilot me.
As a mother stills her child,
Thou canst hush the ocean wild;
  3. Boisterous waves obey Thy will,
When Thou say'st to them "Be still!"
Wondrous Sov'reign of the sea,
Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

4. 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."
