Seaman’s Version of the 23rd Psalm.
The Lord is my Pilot; I shall not drift. He lighteth me across the dark waters; He steereth me in the deep channels; He keepeth my log. He guideth me by the star of holiness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I sail ‘mid the thunders and tempests life, I shall dread no danger; for Thou art with me. Thy love and thy care they shelter me. Thou prepares a harbor before me in the homeland of eternity; Thou anointest the waves with oil; my ship rideth calmly. Surely, sunlight and starlight shall favor me on the voyage I take, and I will rest in the port of my God forever.”
Joseph Murphy – Pray Your Way Through It (1958)
