The ocean rolls under the boat

The sailors pull the ropes

The captain skreams out commands

As he steers the ship away from the wind

 

A sailor flies over the edge

They toss over a rope

The man loses his grip on it 

And floats into the depths

 

The captain tells them to move on

The sailorws obey

Some finally ower the sails

Others take the oars

 

A light appears in the clouds

Finally, a break from the storm

The sun shows through, and the sky is blue

The wind slows to a peaceful state

 

The sailor in the crow's nest calls down to the crew,

"Land Ho!" he waves a pointed hand,

The captain runs to the upper deck

He bows his head in prayer,

 

"Thank God for his unending grace,

And for his providence

Thank him for eveything on earth

Even that storm of his."

 

The mapkeeper came up to the deck

And informed the captian 

That they had been off track

Untill the storm had hit them
