Prayers for Sailing Through Life Ashore and at Sea

Eternal Spirit, strong to save, who am doth bind the restless wave.

Who bids the might ocean deep, its own appointed limits keep.

Oh hear us when we cry to thee, for those in peril on the sea...

Oh God who stills the restless foam, protect the ones we love at home,

Provide that they shall always be, by thine own grace both safe and free.

Oh Spirit, hear us when we pray, for those we love so far away...
