#303: Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Jesus, Savior, pilot me Over life’s tempestuous sea:

Unknown waves before me roll, Hiding rocks and treach’rous shoal;

Chart and compass come from Thee — Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

2

As a mother still her child, Thou canst hush the ocean wild;

Boist’rous waves obey Thy will When Thou say’st to them, “Be still!”

Wondrous Sov’reign of the sea, Jesus, Savior, pilot me!

 

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!”

1

The King of love my Shepherd is,

Whose goodness faileth never;

I nothing lack if I am His

And He is mine forever.

Where streams of living water flow

My ransomed soul He leadeth,

And, where the verdant pastures grow,

With food celestial feedeth.

Perverse and foolishoft I strayed,

But yet in love He sought me,

And on His shoulder gently laid,

And home rejoicing brought me.

And so thru all the length of days

Thy goodness faileth never:

Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise

Within Thy house forever.

 

300: More Secure Is No One Ever (Late for Wednesday Post)

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

More secure is no one ever

Than the loved ones of the Savior —

Not yon star on high abiding

Nor the bird in home-nest hiding.

2

God His own doth tend and nourish,

In His holy courts they flourish;

Like a father kind He spares them,

In His loving arms He bears them.

3

Neither life not death can ever

From the Lord His children sever,

For His love and deep comapassion

Comforts them in tribulation.

4

Little flock, to joy then yield thee!

Jacob’s God will ever shield thee;

Rest secure with this Defender —

at His will all foes surrender.

5

What He takes or what He gives us

Shows the Father’s love so precious;

We may trust His purpose wholly —

‘Tis His children’s welfare solely.

 

#299: Day by Day (Scheduled for previous Sunday)

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Day by day and with each passing moment,

Strength I find to meet my trials here

Trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment,

I’ve no cause for worry or for fear.

He whose heart is kind beyond all measure

Gives unto each day what he deems best —

Lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure,

Mingling toil with peace and rest.

2

Ev’ry day the Lord Himself is near me

With a special mercy for each hour,

All my cares He fain would bear, and cheer me,

He whose name is Counselor and Pow’r.

The protection of His child and treasure

Is a charge that on Himself He /aid;

“As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure,”

This the pledge to me He made.

3

Help me then in ev’ry tribulation

So to trust Th promises, O Lord,

That I love not faith’s seet consolation

Offered me within Thy holy word.

Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,

E’er to take, as from a father’s hand,

One by one, the days, the moments, fleeting,

Till I reach the promised land.

In shady green pastures, so rich and so sweet,

God leads His dear children along;

Where the water’s cool flow bathes the weary one’s feet,

God leads His dear children along.

Some thru the f ire, but all thru the blood;

Some thru great sorrow, but God gives a song,

In the night season and all the day long.

God leads His dear children along;

Sometimes in the valley, in darkest of night,

God leads His dear children along.
