1. I was sinking deep in sin,
      Far from the peaceful shore,
    Very deeply stained within,
      Sinking to rise no more;
    But the Master of the sea
      Heard my despairing cry,
    From the waters lifted me,
      Now safe am I.
    • Love lifted me!
      Love lifted me!
      When nothing else could help,
        Love lifted me.
  2. All my heart to Him I give,
      Ever to Him I’ll cling,
    In His blessed presence live,
      Ever His praises sing.
    Love so mighty and so true
      Merits my soul’s best songs;
    Faithful, loving service, too,
      To Him belongs.
  3. Souls in danger, look above,
      Jesus completely saves;
    He will lift you by His love
      Out of the angry waves.
    He’s the Master of the sea,
      Billows His will obey;
    He your Savior wants to be—
      Be saved today.
