When a high tide roars with thunder
And my ship shakes with terror,
Queen of Peace comes from heaven
Telling me words of consolation:
“Let nothing disturb you, just let it be
Let nothing frighten you, it will pass away,
Nothing is forever, fear gets you nowhere.
The old has gone, the new has come;
Declare Hope from Despair in Light from Dark,
Follow the North Star, even if you doubt it.”
Then her words become music soft and sweet
Crept on shining waters with the reflection of stars,
Allaying the temptuous temper of the sea and mine.
