MARINER




The christian voy'ger strikes the rock
That lies concealed beneath the wave!
Yet safely he survives the shock;
For Jesus is at hand to save.


His destin'd land he sometimes sees.
And thinks his toils will soon be o'er.
Expects some favorable, breeze
Will waft him quickly to the shore.


But hark!—the midnight tempest roars!
He seems forsaken, and alone:
But Jesus, whom he then implores,
Unseen preserves and leads him on.


Tho' fear his heart should overwhelm.
He'll reach the port to which he's bound;
For Jesus holds and guides the helm,
And soon the haven will be found.
