He guided them to their desired haven. Psalm 107:30


Words & Mu­sic: T. W. Den­ning­ton, in Glow­ing Songs, ed­ited by Char­lie D. Till­man (At­lan­ta, Georg­ia: Char­lie D. Till­man, 1895), number 8 (🔊 pdf nwc).

If you know Den­ning­ton’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of him (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Say, where are you go­ing, my bro­ther,
Upon the broad ocean of time?
Are you bound for the land of the bless­èd,
A home in fair Ca­naan’s bright clime?


Steer straight to the light­house, my bro­ther,
There’s dan­ger up­on the dark wave;
Ask Je­sus to keep and to guide you.
He’s able and will­ing to save.

Be sure that the Sav­ior is with thee
Wherever thy life boat may go;
Should you take your life jour­ney with­out Him,
You’ll sink ’neath the bil­lows of woe.


Look not on the lamps that burn dim­ly,
But look to the light of God’s love;
Look not on the wrecks by the sea­shore,
But look to the light-house above.
