He is the captain of salvation

climb aboard the ship of life

He is the anchor strong and steadfast

able to conquer the sea of strife


He is the fairest of ten thousand

the Bright and Morning Star

He is the candle set upon the hill

that guides us through the dark


He is the light and life of men

for those who seek His grace

He is the worthy Lamb of God

in whom I've put my faith


For I know whom I have believed

and I am fully persuaded

that Jesus Christ is the Son of God

and by His Grace I'll make it
