Cape of Destiny

As the ark,
     without sail or
          rudder to steer,
               kept Noah dry,
It was the hand of God
     that carried it through
          the world's worst flood,
               and led it to the mountain top...
And that was enough for Noah.

As a fishing boat,
     covered with waves
          and beaten by the sea,
               kept the apostles afloat,
It was the voice of Jesus
     that stilled the violent winds
          and calmed the raging sea,
               landing on the distant shores...
And that was enough for Peter's crew.

On this orb,
     like with the ark
          and fishing boat,
               I float high and dry,
But it is by the Grace of God
     that whatever storms do swell,
           whatever waves threaten me,
                I can find the cape* of destiny...
And that has to be enough for me.

*a cape is a point of land jutting out into
the sea
