Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me

Words by Edward Hopper (1816-1888)
Music by John E. Gould (1822-1875)

 Jesus Savior, pilot me over life's tempestuous sea;
Unknown waves before me roll, hiding rock and treacherous shoal;
Chart and compass came from Thee; Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

As a mother stills her child, Thou canst hush the ocean wild;
Boisterous waves obey Thy will, when Thou say'st to them "Be still!"
Wondrous Sov'reign of the sea, Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

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."

"And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea.
Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm."

- Mark 4:39
