835. C. M. Select Hymns. Prayer for Seamen.
1 We come, O Lord, before thy throne,
And, with united pleas,
We meet and pray for those who roam
Far off upon the seas.
2 O, may the Holy Spirit bow
The sailor's heart to thee,
Till tears of deep repentance flow
Like rain-drops in the sea.
3 Then may a Saviour's dying love
Pour peace into his breast,
And waft him to the port above
Of everlasting rest.
