A Sailor's Prayer
Watch over her for me,
that she may safely guarded be.
Help her each lonely hour to bear,
as I would lord if I was there.
When she is sleeping watch her then,
that fear may not her dreams offend,
Be ever near her though the day,
let non, but goodness come her way.
Sweet faithful girl who waits for me,
beyond the wide as spacious sea.
Be merciful, O God, I pray,
take care of her while I'm away.
