Christian Worship Hymn At Sea.
O Thou who hast spread out the skies,
And measured the depths of the sea,
‘Twixt heavens and ocean shall rise
Our incense of praises to thee.
We know that thy presence is near
While heaves our bark far from the land;-
We ride o’er the deep without fear;-
The waters are held in thy hand.
Eternity comes in the sound
Of billows that never can sleep!
There’s Deity circling us round,-
Omnipotence walks o’er the deep!
O Father, our eye is to thee,
As on for the haven we roll;
And faith in our Pilot shall be
An anchor to steady the soul.
