Voyage

As we are bivouacked together
Through this seemingly transient transit
We’ve got to have our sculls well fastened
The bowel made ready against nausea
As we launch on through the voyage of life
We need not fret or be frail
Though the sky looks dark and dreary
And the stormy gale rise up all day
As we launch, His voice shall the storm obey
As He said ‘peace be still’ and all is okay

So then let us go without a dying
Living our lives until to heaven a flying
We would not bow to the devil with all his lying
Because we have the Truth, on this we are relying
Unto this we shall hold while other riddles untying

Not just in words of mouth but in our deeds
We’re living righteously just as our Christ did
Picking carefully our pace, following his lead
Now that we’ve come of age not as mere kid
We know our worth, yea the title deed!
