The LORD will destroy the house of the proud,
but he will establish the border of the widow.

Inspiring Hymns #176
Upon a wide and stormy sea, thou’rt sailing to eternity, and thy great Admiral orders Thee: — “Sail on! sail on! sail on!”
Art far from shore, and weary-worn — the sky o’ercast, the canvas torn? Hark ye! a voice to thee is borne: — “Sail on! sail on! sail on!”
Do comrades tremble and refuse to further dare the taunting hues? No other course is thine to choose, Sail on! sail on! sail on!
Do snarling waves thy craft assail? art powerless, drifting with the gale? Take heart! God’s word shall never fail! Sail on! sail on! sail on!
Chorus: Sail on! sail on! the storms will soon be past, the darkness will not always last; Sail on! sail on! God lives! and He commands: “Sail on! sail on!”
Words: C. H. G.
