Greenland

7, 6

Swan

1.

Why should I be affrighted

At pestilence and war,

The fiercer be the tempest,

The sooner it is o'er

(Repeat previous line twice)

(Repeat previous 2 lines)

2.

With Jesus in the vessel,

The billows rise in vain,

They only will convey me

To yon Elysian plains,

(Repeat previous line twice)

(Repeat previous 2 lines)

3.

This world is full of dangers,

And foes that press me hard;

But Jesus he has promised

That he will be my guard.

(Repeat previous line twice)

(Repeat previous 2 lines)

4.

Here I shall not be tempted

Above what I can bear,

When fightings are exerted,

His kingdom for to share.

(Repeat previous line twice)

(Repeat previous 2 lines)

5.

From him I have my orders,

And while I do obey,

I find his Holy Spirit

Illuminates my way.

(Repeat previous line twice)

(Repeat previous 2 lines)

6.

The way is so delightful,

I wish to travel on,

Till I arrive at heaven,

To receive a starry crown.

(Repeat previous line twice)

(Repeat previous 2 lines)
