Ocean Prayer


God the Father, all-powerful, all loving,

Jesus, the Son of tears and sorrow,

With thy co-assistance, O Holy Spirit!

The Three-One, ever-living, ever-mighty, everlasting,

Who brought the Children of Israel through the Red Sea,

And Jonah to land from the belly of the great creature of the ocean,

Who brought Paul and his companions in the ship,

From the torment of the sea, from the sorrow of the waves,

From the great gale, from the heavy storm,

Protect us and shield and sanctify us,

Be seated, O king of the elements, at our helm,

And lead us in peace to the end of our journey.
