A Reminder of Offering to the Sea

Michael Lux

Poised, upon the waves great oceans,
O Great God, hear our prayers;
Save us from untimely death at sea,
Entreating us to your bounteous gifts.
In ancient days, before we knew,
Day’s light that spanned across the globe;
Offerings given at terrestrial dates,
Now can be repaid what we’ve since owed.
