"They That Go Down..."

Night Mists by Montague Dawson
Night Mists

They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters;
these see the works of the Lord,
and his wonders in the deep.

For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind,
which lifteth up the waves thereof.
they mount up to heaven,
they go down again to the depths:
their soul is melted because of trouble.

Scene Two: The Sailing Vessel Runs into Rough Seas by P.e. Lawrence
Scene Two: The Sailing Vessel Runs into Rough Seas

They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,
and are at their wits' end.

Then they cry unto the lord in their trouble,
and he bringeth them out of their distresses.

He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof are still;

Peaceful Harbor by Robert G. Radcliffe

Then they are glad because they be quiet;
so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness,
and for His wonderful works to the children of men!
---The Bible
Psalm CVII:23-31
