1 Steady, brother, steady, tho' the storm-winds rise,
And darkness gather o'er you and it veil your skies;
Keep your course unwavered, and be brave, be true;
Fear not while the Master holds the helm with you.

Refrain:
Steady, steady, tho' clouds veil the sky;
Steady, steady, tho' waves roll high;
Steady, steady, be brave, be true,
Fear not while the Master holds the helm with you.

2 Steady, brother steady tho' the wild waves sweep,
Your barque will ride in safety for He rules the deep;
Waves shall not o'er flow you while the Pilot's near,
By the chart He giveth, your course can steer. [Refrain]

3 Steady, brother, steady, look you over there,
Beyond the cloud and tempest see, the port lies fair;
There within the harbor with the storms all past,
You can safely anchor, sheltered safe at last. [Refrain]
