He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.@Mark 4:39

Drifting carelessly with the tide,
Drifting over the waters wide,
With no captain your course to guide,
Drifting over life’s sea.

Refrain

Drifting, drifting, no port in sight!
Drifting far from the Gospel light;
Lest you go down in the stormy night;
Drifting over life’s sea.

Drifting almost upon the bar,
Losing sight of the beacon star;
From the haven of joy afar,
Drifting over life’s sea.

Refrain

Drifting on, with no shore in view,
Think not skies will be always blue;
Storm and shipwreck will come to you,
Drifting over life’s sea.

Refrain

Drift no longer! let Jesus save,
Let Him guide you across the wave,
Lest you sink in a sinner’s grave,
Drifting over life’s sea.

Refrain
