Eternal Lord God,
You alone have spread out the heavens
And rule the raging of the sea;
Bless and keep all who go down to the sea in ships;
Preserve them in all dangers
And bring them in safety to the haven where they would be,
With a thankful remembrance of your mercies,
To praise and glorify your holy name;
through Jesus Christ our Saviour.
Our Father in heaven,
the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
Lord, make us instruments of your peace;
where there is hatred, let us sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is discord, union;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
