PRESERVATION BY SEA




How are Thy servants blest, O Lord!
How sure is their defense!
Eternal wisdom is their guide,
Their help Omnipotence.


In foreign realms, and lands remote,
Supported by Thy care,
Through burning climes they pass unhurt,
And breathe in tainted air.


Thy mercy sweetens every soil,
makes every region please;
The hoary frozen hills it warms,
And smooths the boisterous seas.


When by the dreadful tempest borne
High on the broken wave,
They know Thou art not slow to hear,
Nor impotent to save.


The storm is laid, the winds retire,
Obedient to Thy will,
The sea, that roars at Thy command,
At Thy command is still.


From all our griefs and fears, O Lord,
Thy mercy sets us free;
While in the confidence of prayer
Our hearts take hold on Thee.


In midst of dangers, fears and death,
Thy goodness we adore;
We praise Thee for Thy mercies past,
And humbly hope for more


Our life, while Thou preservest life,
A sacrifice shall be;
And death, when death shall be our lot,
Shall join our souls to Thee.

In foreign realms, and lands remote,
Supported by Thy care,
They pass unhurt through burning climes,
And breathe in tainted air.


Thou by the dreadful tempest tossed
High on the broken wave,
They know Thou art not slow to her,
Nor impotent to save.


In midst of dangers, fears and death,
Thy goodness Iíll adore;
And praise Thee for Thy mercies past,
And humbly hope for more.


My life, while Thou preserv'st that life,
Thy sacrifice shall be;
And death, when death shall be my lot,
Shall join our souls to Thee.
