54. Euroclydon An Anthem

they that go down to the Sea on Ships
and Occupy their Bus'ness in great Waters
these men see God's wonders
his great and mighty wonders in the deep
for he commanded the story winds to blow
and he lifted up the Waves thereof
they are mounted up as it were into Heav'n
and then down into the deep
and their souls melt away with trouble
they reel and stagger for like a drunken man
and are at their wits end
then they can cry unto God in their trouble
and he bringeth them out of their distress
he maketh the Storm a calm so that the waves are still
then they are Glad because they are quiet
and he brengeth the Vessel into Port
and all Huzza their friends assembl'd on the Wharf
to welcome them on shore
and all Huzza welcome here again
Welcome home
