There Are Dangers Drear On The Sea Of Li


There are dangers drear on the sea of life,
There are paths to shun where the rocks are rife,
And we’re often toss’d by the wind and tide,
But there’s rest, sweet rest, on the Canaan-side.

Refrain:
O the rest, sweet rest, on the Canaan-side,
Where the angels bright and the saints abide;
For the faithful here, for the true and tried
There is rest, sweet rest, on the Canaan-side.

There are storms to face all the way across,
And so frail our barks, we may suffer loss,
But one Beacon true o’er the sea shall guide
To the rest, sweet rest, on the Canaan-side. [Refrain]

When the skies are dark and the wild waves roll,
Still the Beacon gleams shall our bark control;
In the wondrous light we will onward glide
To our rest, sweet rest, on the Canaan-side. [Refrain]
