Happy Sailing

Steering a sailboat involves
A turning of the rudder
Port or starboard,
And as the rudder goes
So goes the stern
And the boat turns.

Oh that the rudder
     was always compliant with
          the Rudder Man's commands.

Oh to be more responsive
     to His guiding hand on the tiller.

Oh to sail most effortlessly
     over all seas He steers us through.

Let us match our angle in water
     with the angle sought at the helm,

So that when we finally do
    it'll be happy sailing for me and you.

Galatians 5:25
