                                  Text From:
                              THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. 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:
        Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

        2. 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,
        Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

        3. 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."
