The Lord is my Shepherd on the Meadows of the Sea:
His Eye and His Arm are with me in the fiying scud.
Tho' the froth of wickedness rises to my lips, His gale will erase it,
And my curses shall be lost in the waters, while my prayers shall rise to God.
I shall venture forth on the bosom of Death, serene in my Faith.
The ropes and the masts are my doing,
But if they fail my Faith shall endure,
For in Life the Peace of God is on me, and in death His waters cleanse me.
His power and glory are revealed to me;
For I have dreaded Him in the vast waters, and worshipped Him in the stars.
Now I have dared my ignorance and made a song unto Him.
In the short leisure and simple words of the sea.
