I fathom not my mindset, Lord, 

Nor forces deep, entwined,
That day I trimmed a sprightly ship,
Abandoned peaceful climes.
My heart was strong, with steady gaze 
And grasp of sturdy hands,
Guided by a youthful dream
I tracked exotic lands.
Decades out, mind engorged 
With deeds of derring-do,
Yet survived a hunger
Unasuaged, unremoved.
In time, becalmed at deepest point,
Supplies turned paltry dregs,
No hope of spying land anon,
On weak, disheartened legs,
I climbed the mast of broken Man,
Let loose imperiled plea,
While speaking thus I felt Your lift,
Benevolent Homeward Breeze.
