Oh you little, wand'ring little,
Foolish, little ships,
Sailing in the peaceful wake
Of that Beloved Sail.
Little knowing, never caring
Why the wondrous calm,
Why your vaunted safety
From every frightened gale.

Oh you little, wand'ring little,
Foolish, little ships,
Do not trust the treacherous sea
Nor the muted wind,
Though you know not, though you care not
Whence that marvelous calm,
Lest the Blessed Ship sail on,
Leaving you, alone.
