When storms around are sweeping,
When lone my watch I’m keeping,
’Mid fires of evil falling,
’Mid tempters’ voices calling,


Remember me, O Mighty One!
Remember me, O Mighty One!

When walking on life’s ocean,
Control its raging motion;
When from its dangers shrinking,
When in its dread deeps sinking,


When weight of sin oppresses,
When dark despair distresses,
All through the life that’s mortal,
And when I pass death’s portal,
