Lord Of The Wide, Extensive Main,
Whose Power The Wind, The Sea, Controls
Whose Hand Doth Earth And Heaven Sustain,
Whose Spirit Leads Believing Souls:

For Thee We Leave Our Native Shore,
(We Whom Thy Love Delights To Keep)
In Other Climes Thy Works Explore,
And See Thy Wonders In The Deep.

‘Tis Here Thine Unknown Paths We Trace,
Which Dark To Human Eyes Appear;
While Through The Mighty Waves We Pass,
Faith Only Sees That God Is Here.

Throughout The Deep Thy Footsteps Shine,
We Own Thy Way Is In The Sea,
O’erawed By Majesty Divine,
And Lost In Thy Immensity.

Thy Wisdom Here We Learn To Adore,
Thine Everlasting Truth We Prove;
Amazing Heights Of Boundless Power,
Unfathomable Depths Of Love.

Infinite God, Thy Greatness Spanned
These Heavens, And Meted Out The Skies;
Lo! In The Hollow Of Thy Hand
The Measured Waters Sink And Rise!

Thee To Perfection Who Can Tell!
Earth And Her Sons Beneath Thee Lie,
Lighter Than Dust Within Thy Scale,
And Less Than Nothing In Thine Eye.

Yet, In Thy Son, Divinely Great,
We Claim Thy Providential Care;
Boldly We Stand Before Thy Seat,
Our Advocate Hath Placed Us There.

With Him We Are Gone Up On High,
Since He Is Ours, And We Are His;
With Him We Reign Above The Sky,
We Walk Upon Our Subject Seas.

We Boast Of Our Recovered Powers,
Lords Are We Of The Lands And Floods;
And Earth, And Heaven, And All Is Ours,
And We Are Christ’s, And Christ Is God’s.
