William C. Poole (1875–1949)


It helps when temp­ta­tion sweeps ov­er my soul,
And toss­ing is life’s rest­less sea,
To know that my pi­lot has per­fect con­trol,
And Je­sus is think­ing of me.


Thinking of me, think­ing of me,
Jesus my Sav­ior is think­ing of me;
Where’er I may be, on the land, on the sea,
Jesus my Sav­ior is think­ing of me.

It helps me, when plea­sures would lead me as­tray,
To know that the Sav­ior in love,
Is ten­der­ly guid­ing me ov­er life’s way,
And watch­ing from Hea­ven above.


So on­ward I jour­ney in glad­ness to­day,
Wherever my path­way may be;
I know that my Sav­ior is lead­ing the way,
And Je­sus is think­ing of me.
