Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

37. I am the Captain of My Boat

1 I am the captain of my boat on a calm, a calm and peaceful sea
I am the captain of my boat on a calm, a calm and peaceful sea
With waves so still I'm seldom ill, with stars and sun my work gets done
I am the captain of my boat on a calm, a calm and peaceful sea

2 There are equal captains, equal boats, that never sail and never float
On stormy seas with wind and hail the boats get smashed and captains jailed
There are captains who are just like me who die upon a violent sea
So credit not my boat or me but a calm, a calm and peaceful sea.
