When my bark has sailed across the deep,
And touched the other side;
I will fear no ill, for my Lord will keep,
And I’ll be satisfied.


I’ll be satisfied, yes, I’ll be satisfied
When I have crossed the rolling tide;
The angry storms may sweep,
But my Lord will keep,
And I’ll be satisfied.

When I leave this world of sin and woe,
With Jesus to abide;
Not a single sorrow I then shall know,
For I’ll be satisfied.


Jesus helps me as I onward go,
The angry waves to ride;
He will guide my bark safely to the shore,
Then I’ll be satisfied.
