Looking for the lyrics to this old gospel song. Also would like to know where I could find the sheet music to it. The first verse starts "I was sailing on life's ocean, drifting to I knew not where."

As sung by Pastor & Mrs. Buck Ledford, A Shut-In's Prayer, LFLP 21

(J. T. Fly)

I was sailing on life's ocean
Drifting to I knew not where
Till it seemed the holy spirit
Gently whispered in my ear

Then I started to my Savior
I'm so glad that I could say
I have found Him, hallelujah
And He washed my sins away

Then I listened to that whisper
That was calling unto me
It was Jesus sweetly saying
Come and I will make you free


I'm so glad that Jesus found me
What a joy I'll sing it o'er
And some day with Him in glory
I shall live for evermore
