Here is one poem from the album:
SHINE YOUR LIGHT FAR OUT TO SEA,
PAST THE ROCKS AND THROUGH THE WIND.
BRING MY LOVED ONES HOME TO ME,
SAFELY GUIDE THE SAILORS IN.
IN THE MIDST OF RAIN AND STORM,
LIGHT THE WAY FOR US TO SEE.
STEER THE SHIPS AWAY FROM HARM,
AS THEY TRAVEL OUT TO SEA.
THERE'S A LIGHT THAT SHINES ABOVE,
DO YOU KNOW WHO HE COULD BE?
REACHING OUT WITH SO MUCH LOVE,
CALLING OUT TO YOU AND ME.
TAKE HIS HAND; HE'S THERE FOR YOU,
HE WILL GUIDE YOU SAFELY HOME,
AND ALL OTHER CHILDREN TOO.
NEVER FEEL THAT YOU'RE ALONE.
