"The pilot psalm"
Capt.John H.Roberts - 1874
[Domenico Ghirlandaio, 1449-1494]
The Lord is my Pilot; I shall not drift.
He lighteth me across the dark waters:
He steereth me in deep channels.
He keepeth my log:
He guideth me by the star of holiness
For his names sake.
Yea though I sail mid the thunder
and tempest of life,
I will dread no danger for Thou art near me:
Thy love and Thy care they shelter me.
Thou preparest a harbour before me
in the homeland of eternity.
Thou anointest the waves
with oil my ship rideth calmly.
Surely sunlight and starlight
shall favour me on the voyage I take:
amd I will rest in the port of my God
