Hymn/Song Information

Light in the darkness sailor day is at




Light in the darkness, sailor,
day is at hand!
See o’er the foaming billows
fair haven’s land,
Drear was the voyage, sailor,
now almost o’er,
Safe within the life boat, sailor,
pull for the shore.

Pull for the shore, sailor,
pull for the shore!
Heed not the rolling waves,
but bend to the oar;
Safe in the life boat, sailor,
cling to self no more!
Leave the poor old stranded wreck,
and pull for the shore.



Trust in the life boat, sailor,
all else will fail,
Stronger the surges dash
and fiercer the gale,
Heed not the stormy winds,
though loudly they roar;
Watch the “bright and morning Star,”
and pull for the shore!

Pull for the shore, sailor,
pull for the shore!
Heed not the rolling waves,
but bend to the oar;
Safe in the life boat, sailor,
cling to self no more!
Leave the poor old stranded wreck,
and pull for the shore.



Bright gleams the morning, sailor,
uplift the eye;
Clouds and darkness disappearing,
glory is nigh!
Safe in the life boat, sailor,
sing evermore;
“Glory, glory, hallelujah!”
pull for the shore.

Pull for the shore, sailor,
pull for the shore!
Heed not the rolling waves,
but bend to the oar;
Safe in the life boat, sailor,
cling to self no more!
Leave the poor old stranded wreck,
and pull for the shore.
