Blest Savior, Be My Pilot Wise Ė Don Fortner
(Tune: #228 Ė My Faith has Found a Resting Place††† CMD)
1. I ask for grace, for grace divine,
††††††††††† To cross the stormy sea.
††††††††††† For Christ I would the world resign.
††††††††††† O give such grace to me!
††††††††††† Blest Savior, be my Pilot wise,
††††††††††† Your path is in the sea;
††††††††††† Grant grace the billows to despise,
††††††††††† Which often trouble me.
2. I must, if I would see Your work,
††††††††††† Go though the waters deep.
††††††††††† Yet, You have promised in Your Word
††††††††††† My soul to safely keep.
††††††††††† Far more the deadly calm I dread,
††††††††††† Which lets me feel Iím strong,
††††††††††† Than storms that rage over my head,
††††††††††† And make my weakness known.
3. By faith I see the heavínly shore,
††††††††††† The haven of sweet rest,
††††††††††† Where winds and waves disturb no more,
††††††††††† Where nothing can distress!
††††††††††† O Holy Spirit, heavínly Wind,
††††††††††† (O blessed Gale of grace!)
††††††††††† Come, sail me quickly to my Friend
††††††††††† In heavín, my resting place!
