While Across Times Ocean Sailing


While across time’s ocean sailing,
Should thy sky adversely lower,
And temptation’s waves assailing,
Rock thee with alarming power,

Refrain:
Look to Jesus! Look to Jesus!
Whatsoe’er thy trouble be,
Trust in Jesus! Trust in Jesus!
He will prove a friend to thee.

When thy faith begins to waver,
And thy strength and hope grow small,
Raise thine arms to Heav’n, where Jesus
Waits to heed thy faintest call. [Refrain]

When thy heart is sad with trouble,
And thy mind dark with despair,
Look to Jesus, who regards thee,
With the tenderest love and care. [Refrain]

Long as life’s voyage is tending,
Onward ever to its end,
Look to Jesus, He will prove thee
An unfailing, precious friend. [Refrain]
