 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.
