The tide is flowing out




The tide is flowing out,
(The tide is flowing out,)
And we upon its bosom borne
Are drifting to the sea;
Drifting t’ward the portals
Of the boundless sea,
Past all mortal vision
To eternity.

Drifting nearer
To the sea of Eternity;
Drifting nearer
To the sea of Eternity.



The tide is flowing out,
(The tide is flowing out,)
And some upon its bosom borne
Are drifting to the sea;
Drifting on to glory,
Past all pain and care,
Into heaven’s brightness
Where the ransomed are.

Drifting nearer
To the sea of Eternity;
Drifting nearer
To the sea of Eternity.



The tide is flowing out,
(The tide is flowing out,)
And others on its bosom borne
Are drifting to the sea;
Drifting out to darkness,
Far from love and light,
Where the storms are raging,
Into endless night.

Drifting nearer
To the sea of Eternity;
Drifting nearer
To the sea of Eternity.



The tide is flowing out,
(The tide is flowing out,)
But hark! upon its bosom borne
A voice floats o’er the sea;
‘Tis the Saviour calling
To His shelt’ring breast,
“Come to Me, ye weary,
I will give you rest.”

Drifting nearer
To the sea of Eternity;
Drifting nearer
To the sea of Eternity.
