SS & S 1064

Star of peace! To wanderers weary,
Bright the beams that smile on me;
Cheer the pilot’s vision dreary,
Far, far at sea.

Star of hope! Gleams on the billow,
Bless the soul that sighs for Thee;
Bless the sailor’s lonely pillow,
Far, far at sea.

Star of faith! When winds are mocking
All his toil, he flies to Thee;
Save him on the billows rocking,
Far, far at sea.

Star divine! Oh, safely guide him,
Bring the wanderer home to Thee!
Sore temptations long have tried him,
Far, far at sea.
