Lady, Star of the Sea
Pray for Seafarers
Pray for us
O Mary, Star of the Sea, light of every ocean, guide seafarers across all
dark and stormy seas that they may reach the haven of peace and light prepared
in Him who calmed the sea.As we set forth upon the oceans of the world
and cross deserts of our time,show us, O Mary, the fruit of your womb,for
without your Son we are lost.
Pray that we
will never fail on life's journey, that in heart and mind, word and deed,
in days of turmoil and in days of calm,
always look to Christ and say,
is this that even wind and sea obey him?
"Our Lady of Peace, pray for us!
Bright Star of the Sea, guide us!
