Before “Jesus take the wheel”

From the good folks at Door of Hope in Portland. 

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:
Savior, pilot me.

Though the sea be smooth and bright
Sparkling with the stars of night
and my ships path be ablaze
with the light of halcyon days
still I know my need of thee!
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 Sovereign of the sea,
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,
“I will pilot thee.”
