1 My sails are spread to meet the gale,
O glory, hallelujah!
My trusty pilot will not fail,
O glory, hallelujah!

Refrain:
I hear his voice in sweet command,
While at the helm I see him stand;
I soon shall reach my fatherland,
O glory, hallelujah!

2 He stills the waves on ocean’s breast,
O glory, hallelujah!
He lulls my troubled thoughts to rest,
O glory, hallelujah! [Refrain]

3 The towering hills are drawing near,
O glory, hallelujah!
The distant sounds of joy I hear,
O glory, hallelujah! [Refrain]

4 Farewell, farewell to ev’ry care,
O glory, hallelujah!
My home, my home, I’ll soon be there!
O glory, hallelujah! [Refrain]
