Lord, Ruler, over waves and sea,
keep your blessed hand over all Seafarers.
Give me the strength to lead a Christian life aboard our ship.
I do not want to dissapoint anyone
who may expect help from me aboard.
Keep my family athome in your care.
Even when far away from them for long,
let me always beattached to them.
Help me and all Seafarers to keep on the right coursealways,
and to reach the safe port of heaven.
