Sailing on such tempestuous waters
when water mingles freely with the air
when foaming spume and sucking whirlpools
threaten to drag us down into despair
Remember to seek through hellish weather
that beacon of hope, that lighthouse where
you may reset your sails, adjust your heading
to avoid treacherous shoals, and deaths dire lair.
And if, upon the wide sea no lighthouse leads, then
Trim your sails and ride with that howling gale
Downwind upon those waves, hard set your rudder
smiling grim to lashing furies. they shall not prevail
against a brave captain, this crew, this strongly built ship
for hope is never lost where such brave souls sail.
