Here is a song, adapted from Psalm 107, which speaks metaphorically of God’s ever presence even in the toughest of situations. The journey of those who go down to the sea in ships is the journey of life, itself. It rings both ancient and modern.

They That Go Down To The Sea In Ships
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link
From King David’s 107th Psalm

They that go down to the sea in ships,
That do business in great waters;
These see the works of the Lord,
And his wonders in the deep.

They that go down to the sea in ships,
And adventure in His oceans
These hold the hand of the Lord,
Both in tempest and in sleep

For He commands,
And raises the stormy wind
Which lifts the waves thereof.
They mount up to heaven,
They go down to the depths of the deep

The waves, the waves they rule the sea

But in turn
Are ruled by God who holds
The heavens and earth and seas
In His grips
And they that go down to the sea in ships

Give thanks unto the Lord,
For all He does
He makes the storm a calm,
So that the waves are still.
He stays the wind,
He soothes the quake
With the impulse of His will

He quiets the night and ebbs the tide
And brings us to safe harbor
Safe harbor
Safe harbor
All those souls held in His grips
And they who go down to the sea in ships

He sends his word,
And heals us,
And delivers us from the depths

They that go down to the sea in ships
