|(LIFE-BOAT. 11,11,11,12. With Refrain)|
|Philip P. Bliss||Philip P. Bliss|
- Light in the darkness, sailor, day is at hand!
See o'er the foam ing billows fair Haven's land,
Drear was the voyage, sailor, now almost o'er ;
Safe with - in the life-boat, sail - or, pull for the shore !
Pull for shore, sail or, pull for the shore,
Heed not the roll-ing waves, but bend to the oar
Safe in the life-boat, sail or, cling to self no more!
Leave the poor old stranded wreck, and pull for the shore.
- Trust in the lifeboat, sailor ; all else will fail,
Stronger the surges dash and fierc - er the gale;
Heed not the stormy winds, tho' loudly they roar;
Watch the 'Bright and Morning Star,' and pull for the shore!
- Bright gleams the morning, sailor; uplift the eye :
Clouds and darkness disappearing, glory is nigh!
Safe in the lifeboat, sailor, sing ev - er-more '
Glory, glory, halleluah 'pull for the shore!
