Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me
Words by Edward Hopper

Mark 4:39
"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."


            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.
