Were Floating Down The Stream Of Time


We’re floating down the stream of time,
We have not long to stay;
The stormy clouds of darkness
Will turn to brightest day.
Then let us all take courage,
For we’re not left alone;
The lifeboat soon is coming
To gather the Jewels home.

Refrain:
Then cheer, my brother, cheer,
Our trials will soon be o’er,
Our lov’d ones we shall meet, shall meet,
Upon the golden shore.
We’re pilgrims and we’re strangers here,
We’re seeking a city to come,
The lifeboat soon is coming,
To gather the Jewels home.

Sometimes the Devil tempts me,
And says it’s all in vain
To try to live a Christian life
And walk in Jesus’ name;
But then we hear the Master say,
“I’ll lend you a helping hand,
And if you’ll only trust me,
I’ll guide you to the land.” [Refrain]

The lifeboat soon is coming,
By eyes of faith I see
As she sweeps thro’ the waters
To rescue you and me,
And land us safely in the port
With friends we love so dear.
“Get ready,” cries the Captain;
“Oh, look, she’s almost here.” [Refrain]

Oh, now’s the time to get on board,
While she is passing by;
But if you stand and wait too long,
You shall forever die;
The fare is paid for one and all,
The Captain bids you come,
And get on board the lifeboat,
She’ll carry you safely home. [Refrain]
