To ask the obvious: is it not credited on the recording, 4LON?

SHIP FROM KING'S HARBOR SHORE
Emma Smith

1. Just like a ship I set out to sea
With no one to guide along,
Drifting along without direction
As the waves grew fearful and strong.
I wanted to show the world I could conquer
The waves of life on my own,
But I soon found out I just couldn't do it;
I'd never make it alone.

CHORUS: There's a rescue ship from the King's Harbor Shore.
You better get on board today.
It's the greatest ship that ever sailed.
This ship's the only way
To rescue you from your storm-tossed life
When you just can't take any more.
Jesus is the captain on the rescue ship
That sails from the King's Harbor Shore.

2. My ship it wrecked in the midst of the ocean.
I couldn't swim back to shore,
Ruined and battered by the storms of life,
Till it couldn't take any more.
I cried "master, please rescue me
From drowning in this sea.
I need you to guide me; from the storms hide me,
From all my troubles set free.

3. Then into my view I saw a great ship.
It was sailing upon the dark waves.
It seemed so steady and so strong
As it swiftly came my way.
With its search lights shining so powerful and bright,
It found me there just in time,
And I knew it was sent from the King's Harbor Shore
This poor lost sinner to find.

[Sung by Larry Sparks on "Old Church Yard" (2002) and "Heaven Bound: The Best of Bluegrass Gospel" (2003)]

I believe my Mom (Emma Smith) wrote that one, all though Larry did record it as well.
