Out on the perilous deep, where danger silently creeps

††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†† Am†††††††††††† G†††††††††††††† D††††††††††† G

And storms so violently sweep, you're drifting too far from shore

 

<CHORUS>

††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

Drifting too far from shore

†††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††G

Youíre drifting too far from shore

Come to Jesus today; let him show you the way

†††††††††††† G††††††††††††††† D††††††††††† G

Youíre drifting too far from shore

Today the tempest rolls high, and clouds overshadow the sky

†††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††† C†† Am††††††††††† G†††††††††††††† D††††††††††† G

Sure death is hovering nigh, youíre drifting too far from shore

 

<CHORUS>

Why meet a terrible fate? Mercies abundantly wait

†††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††† CAm†††††††††† G††††††††††††††† D††††††††††† G

Turn back before itís too late. Youíre drifting too far from shore
