WOLM News
I was drifting away on life’s pitiless sea,
And the angry waves threatened my ruin to be,
When away at my side, there I dimly described
A stately old vessel, and loudly I cried:
“Ship ahoy!” Ship ahoy!”
And loudly I cried: “Ship ahoy!”

‘Twas the old ship of Zion, thus sailing along,
All aboard her seemed joyous, I heard their sweet song;
And the Captain’s kind ear, ever ready to hear,
Caught my wail of distress, as I cried out in fear:
“Ship ahoy!” Ship ahoy!”
As I cried out in fear: “Ship ahoy!”

The good Captain commanded a boat to be low’red,
And with tender compassion He took me on board;
And I’m happy today, all my sins washed away
In the blood of my Savior, and now I can say:
“Bless the Lord!” Bless the Lord”
From my soul I can say: “Bless the Lord!”

O soul. Sinking down ‘neath sin’s merciless wave,
The strong arm of our Captain is mighty to save;
Then trust Him today, no longer delay,
Board the old ship of Zion, and shout on your way:
“Jesus saves!” Jesus saves!”
Shout and sing on your way: “Jesus saves!”
