The Teachings of Christ: Sermon on the Mount. Prayer of the Week Winfred Ernest Garrison: Mariner’s Prayer. Thy sea, O God, so great; My boat so small, It cannot be that any happy fate; Will me befall, Save as Thy goodness opens paths for me, Through the consuming vastness of the sea.
Thy sea, O God, so great; My boat so small,It cannot be that any happy fate; Will me befall,Save as Thy goodness opens paths for me,Through the consuming vastness of the sea.
Thy winds, O God, so strong; So slight my sail.How could I cub and bit them on the long;
