O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
Upon a wide and stormy sea,
Thou'rt sailing to eternity,
And thy great Adm'ral orders thee,
"Sail on, sail on, sail on!"

Art far from shore and weary worn--
The sky o'ercast, thy canvas torn?
Hark ye! a voice is to thee born,
"Sail on, sail on, sail on!"

Do comrades tremble and refuse
To further dare the taunting hues?
No other course is thine to choose,
"Sail on, sail on, sail on!"

Do snarling waves thy craft assail?
Art pow'rless, drifting with the gale?
Take heart! God's word shall never fail--
Sail on, sail on, sail on!"

Chorus:
Sail on! sail on! the storms will soon be past,
The darkness will not always last!
Sail on! sail on! God lives!
And He commands:
"Sail on, sail on!"
