Drifting Carelessly With The Tide


Drifting carelessly with the tide,
Drifting over the waters wide,
With no Captain your course to guide,
Drifting over life’s sea.

Refrain:
Drifting, drifting, no port in sight,
Drifting far from the gospel light;
Lest you go down in the stormy night;
Drifting over life’s sea.

Drifting almost upon the bar,
Losing sight of the Beacon Star;
From the haven of joy afar,
Drifting over life’s sea. [Refrain]

Drifting on, with no shore in view,
Think not skies will be always blue;
Storm and shipwreck will come to you,
Drifting over life’s sea. [Refrain]

Drift no longer! let Jesus save,
Let Him guide you across the wave,
Lest you sink in a sinner’s grave,
Drifting over life’s sea. [Refrain]
