Jesus, Saviour, Pilot Me

     Edward Hopper, D.D.                                         J. E. Gould

Jesus, Saviour, pilot me
Over life's tempestuous sea;
Unknown waves before me roll
Hiding rocks and treach'rous shoal;
Chart and compass come from thee;
Jesus, Saviour, pilot me.

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.

When at last I near the shore,
And the fearful breakers roar
'Twixt my soul and peaceful rest,
Then, while leaning on thy breast,
May I hear thee say to me,
"Fear not, I will pilot thee."
