Upon A Wide And Stormy Sea


Upon a wide and stormy sea,
Thou’rt sailing to eternity,
And thy great Admiral orders thee:-
“Sail on! sail on! sail on!”

Chorus:
Sail on! sail on! the storms will soon be past,
The darkness will not always last;
Sail on! sail on! God lives and He commands:
“Sail on! Sail on!”

Art far from shore, and weary worn-
The sky o’ercast, thy canvas torn?
Hark ye! a voice to thee is borne:-
“Sail on! sail on! sail on!” [Chorus]

Do comrades tremble and refuse
To further dare the taunting hues?
No other course is thine to choose,
“Sail on! sail on! sail on!” [Chorus]

Do snarling waves thy craft assail?
Art pow’rless, drifting with the gale?
Take heart! God’s Word shall never fail!
“Sail on! sail on! sail on!” [Chorus]]
