   1 Would you behold the works of God,
      is wonders in the world abroad,
      Go with the mariners, and trace
      The unknown regions of the seas.

   2 They leave their native shores behind,
      And seize the favor of the wind;
      Till God command, and tempests rise
      That heave the ocean to the skies.

   3 Now to the heav'ns they mount amain,
      Now sink to dreadful deeps again;
      What strange affrights young sailors feel,
      And like a stagg'ring drunkard reel!

   4 When land is far, and death is nigh,
      Lost to all hope, to God they cry;
      His mercy hears the loud address,
      And sends salvation in distress.

   5 He bids the winds their wrath assuage,
      The furious waves forget their rage;
      'Tis calm, and sailors smile to see
      The haven where they wished to be.

   6 O may the sons of men record
      The wondrous goodness of the Lord!
      Let them their private off'rings bring,
      And in the church his glory sing.
