He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed…and He guided them to their desired haven.@Psalm 107:29-30

French E. Oliver, Oliver’s Songs of Deliverance (Kansas City, Missouri: French E. Oliver, 1908), number 1 (🔊 pdf nwc).

I’m on life’s ocean, homeward bound,
My pilot is Jesus;
Where many mansions will be found,
My pilot is Jesus.

Refrain

My pilot is Jesus,
My pilot is Jesus;
Oh, what care I though waves are high;
My pilot is Jesus.

The old ship Zion is my boat,
My Pilot is Jesus;
In every storm she’ll safely float,
My pilot is Jesus.

Refrain

No hiding rock or treacherous shoal,
My pilot is Jesus.
Can wreck me ere I reach my goal,
My pilot is Jesus.

Refrain

He calms the raging winds at will,
My pilot is Jesus;
He speaks, and lashing waves are still,
My pilot is Jesus.
