They that go down to the sea in ships, doing great business on the great waters;
They see the deeds of the Lord, his wondrous works in the deep.
But there raises up the stormy wind, which lifts up the waves of the sea.
They that go down to the sea in ships go down to the depths; their courage melted away;
They reel and stagger like drunken men and are at their wits’ end.
But when they cry to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivers them from their distress;
He makes the storm be still, and the waves of the seas hushed.
The Lord delivers them.
And they are glad because they have quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven.
They that go down to the sea in ships see the strength of the Lord, his wondrous works. His mighty strength.
Let all who go down to the sea in ships thank the Lord for this steadfast love, for his wonderful works to the sons of men!
Thanks, and praise be to God.
