Hymn/Song Information

Launch thy bark mariner Christian God




Launch thy bark, mariner!
Christian, God speed thee!
Let loose the rudder bands,
Good angels lead thee!
Set thy sails warily,
Tempests will come;
Steer thy course steadily,
Christian steer home!


Look to the weather bow,
Breakers are round thee;
Let fall thy plummet now,
Shallows may ground thee.
Reef in thy foresail there;
Hold the help fast;
So,—let the vessel wear,—
By swept the blast.


Slacken no sail yet, at
Inlet or island;
Straight for the beacon steer,—
Straight for the highland;
Crowd all the canvas on,
Cut through the foam;—
Christian! cast anchor now;
Heaven is thy home!
