Jesus, Saviour, Pilot Me

OHT Incipit:  

Jesus, Saviour, pilot me,
Over life's tempestuous sea;
Unknown waves before me roll,
Hiding rock and treacherous shoal,
Chart and compass come from Thee;
Jesus, Saviour, pilot me!

As a mother stills her child,
Thou canst hush the ocean wild,
Boisterous waves obey Thy will
When Thou sayest to them, Be still!
Wonderous Sovereign of the sea,
Jesus, Saviour, pilot me!

When at last I near the shore,
And the fearful breakers roar
'Twixt me and the peaceful rest,
Then when leaning on Thy breast,
May I hear Thee say to me,
Fear not! I will pilot thee!
