Breton Fisherman’s Prayer 1

Dear Lord,
Be good to me, the sea is so large and our boat is so small’ expresses the thoughts of lonely sailors out at sea but perhaps also speaks for all of us when faced with the many problems of our lives. An unusual gift for fishermen, sailors or anyone connected to the sea.
Amen.

Breton Fisherman’s Prayer 2

This boat of mine, oh Lord,
Is how so small; This sail, oh master, scarce your winds can hold. Weak are my arms to trim, to tack, to haul Before grim waves that bludgeon, then to enfold. These eyes of mine, oh Lord, cannot discern Cliff, dune or harbour over high flung seas; The angered skies deny my sure return To cottage waiting by the sea-girt leas. Your mercy, Lord, is kind and how so great, To my inconsequence made manifest; So for your servant may your winds abate; Send home his boat to safe and certain rest. As small my soul before the raging tide; Your mercy, as your ocean, Lord, is wide.
Amen.
