Arranged by: Diane Tuiofu

Verse One

(Solo and Piano)

Jesus, Savior, pilot me

Over life's tempestuous sea;

Unknown waves before me roll,

Hiding rock and treacherous shoal.

Chart and compass come from thee;

Jesus, Savior, pilot me.


Verse Two

(Congregation or Choir and Organ)

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 sovreign of the sea,

Jesus, Savior, pilot me.


Verse Three

(Solo, Organ, Piano)

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."
