Jesus My Lifesaver

In sunshine or shadow,
Dull days or bright,
Christ is my anchor,
And unfailing light.

Storm-tossed and battered
Or becalmed with no breeze,
There is peace and assurance
To be found on my knees.

God is the Lighthouse,
Dependable, sure,
At my weakest signal
His lifeboat leaves shore.

Not waiting and watching
'til I struggle to land,
He comes where I foundered
With strong outstretched hand.

Oh, what a blessing
When he's in control.
Jesus, my Lifesaver,
Harbours my soul!
