He Pilots My Ship

Lyrics

Print-Friendly Lyrics

The soul of a man is like a ship
That sails on the sea of time
Storms may come and winds may blow
And rock this ship of mine
But the reason my ship has never sank
And today it’s still afloat
My compass is His precious Word
And Jesus pilots my boat.

I won’t sail these stormy seas no more
Unless Jesus leads the way
I won’t ever drift so far from the shore
I can’t hear what He has to say
For I belong to a fleet that sails today
On a glorious one way trip
We’ll land safely on shore to sail no more
For Jesus pilots my ship

My soul pulled in to safety’s port
The stern was torn apart
The bow of my vessel was so badly crushed
Sin waters’ flooded my heart
I had sailed so long on life’s angry waves
With my cargo of fear and despair
Then I called on His name and He lifted the blame
Now He pilots my ship everywhere

I won’t sail these stormy seas no more
Unless Jesus leads the way
I won’t ever drift so far from the shore
I can’t hear what He has to say
For I belong to a fleet that sails today
On a glorious one way trip
We’ll land safely on shore to sail no more
For Jesus pilots my ship

I won’t sail these stormy seas no more
Unless Jesus leads the way
I won’t ever drift so far from the shore
I can’t hear what He has to say
For I belong to a fleet that sails today
On a glorious one way trip
We’ll land safely on shore to sail no more
For Jesus pilots my ship
He pilots my ship
