There are no guarantees On this voyage, Only untamed wind, Whitecaps, And the fathomless deep. We are not promised An easy passage Only a Pilot Who knows all things. Whoever sets sail On this ship, Whoever says yes To His call, Finds the Life That is Life indeed. Whatever dangers, Whatever hardships Await them, They have a harbor No storm can reach.
