The United Methodist Hymnal


Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me

1.	Jesus, Savior, pilot me
	over life's tempestuous sea;
	unknown waves before me roll,
	hiding rock and treacherous shoal.
	Chart and compass came from thee;
	Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

2.	As a mother stills her child,
	thou canst hush the ocean wild;
	boisterous waves obey thy will,
	when thou sayest to them, "Be still!"
	Wondrous sovereign of the sea,
	Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

3.	When at last I near the shore,
	and the fearful breakers roar
	'twixt me and the peaceful rest,
	then, while leaning on thy breast,
	may I hear thee say to me,
	"Fear not, I will pilot thee."
