1 When any turn from Zion's way,
(Alas! what numbers do!)
Methinks I hear my Savior say,
"Wilt thou forsake me too?"

2 Ah! Lord, with such a heart as mine,
Unless thou hold me fast,
I feel I must, I shall decline,
And prove like them at last.

3 Yet thou alone hast power I know,
To save a wretch like me:
To whom or whither could I go,
If I should turn from thee?

4 Beyond a doubt I rest assured
Thou art the Christ of God;
Who hast eternal life secured,
By promise and by blood.

5 The help of men and angels joined,
Could never reach my case;
Nor can I hope relief to find,
But in thy boundless grace.

6 No voice but thine can give me rest,
And bid my fears depart;
No love but thine can make me blest,
And satisfy my heart.

7 What anguish has that question stirred,
If I will also go?
Yet, Lord relying on thy word,
I humbly answer, No.

His life at sea teems with wonderful escapes, vivid dreams, and sailor recklessness. He grew into an abandoned and godless sailor. The religious fits of his boyhood changed into settled infidelity, through the study of Shaftesbury and… Go to person page >
