If you know Hol­land’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of him or Ve­na­ble,


When my bark has sailed across the deep,
And touched the oth­er side;
I will fear no ill, for my Lord will keep,
And I’ll be sa­tis­fied.


I’ll be sa­tis­fied, yes, I’ll be sa­tis­fied
When I have crossed the roll­ing tide;
The an­gry storms may sweep,
But my Lord will keep,
And I’ll be sa­tis­fied.

When I leave this world of sin and woe,
With Je­sus to abide;
Not a sin­gle sor­row I then shall know,
For I’ll be sa­tis­fied.


Jesus helps me as I on­ward go,
The an­gry waves to ride;
He will guide my bark safe­ly to the shore,
Then I’ll be sa­tis­fied.
