Lyrics

When out on life’s ocean,
The waves dashing high,
While waters are troubled,
And no help is nigh,
I’ll sing Ebenezer
And watch for the light,
And call to remembrance
My song in the night.

Refrain

My song in the night,
My song in the night;
I call to remembrance
My song in the night.

God’s promise is sure,
And we’re safe in His care,
He’ll help all His children
Their burdens to bear;
To Him let us look
To be kept in the right,
And call to remembrance
Our song in the night.

Refrain

The blood of the Savior
Will cleanse every one;
O sinner, He’ll save you
If only you’ll come;
Accept of His mercy,
Your way will be bright,
Then sing with the saved ones
Your song in the night.

Refrain

The home over there
Will be soon our abode,
Tho’ straight is the way
Oftentimes rough the road;
But Jesus our guide
Is the way and the light,
I call to remembrance
My song in the night.
