Salvation's Captain, and the Guide
 
Of all that seek the rest above,
 
Beneath Thy shadow we abide,
 
The cloud of Thy protecting love;
 
Our strength Thy grace, our rule Thy Word,
 
Our end the glory of the Lord.
Hebrews 2:10; Psalm 91:1; 2 Timothy 2:1; Psalm 119:105,133; Jude 1:24
2
Lord, by Thy Word and Spirit led,
 
We shall not in the desert stray,
 
Or light for our direction need,
 
Or lose, if dark and drear, our way;
 
Still kept from danger and from fear,
 
Since Thy almighty love is near.
John 16:13; Psalm 119:105; Mark 6:47-51

“And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land. And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them. But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out. For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid. And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.” (Mark 6:47-51)
