1 Ere the tide of life is ebbing,
Ere its sands are running low,
Turn we now to Christ our Savior,
That His peace we here may know.

Refrain:
Christ is ever kind and tender,
He will guard us, He will save;
Let us never from Him wander,
For His life for us He gave.

2 Then, dear Shepherd, close unfold us
In Thy constant, loving care;
We are poor, and weak, and sinful,
Keep us safe from every snare. [Refrain]

3 Death may daily watch our footsteps,
Life may swiftly steal away,
But we know our God will guide us
Through the night to endless day. [Refrain]
