“Voyage” from The Valley of Vision

O Lord of the oceans,

My little bark sails on a restless sea,
Grant that Jesus may sit at the helm and steer me safely;

Bring me to harbour with flying pennants, hull unbreached, cargo unspoiled.

I venture on thee wholly, fully, my wind, sunshine, anchor, defence.

A Message to Those Who Wait

Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone
To have a deep soul relationship with another,
To be loved thoroughly, and exclusively.

There’s a hollow in the house and a hollow in my heart And the happiness won’t rouse Til the journey back home starts While you’ve gone away I’ve had plenty…
