A Psalm of Preaching

I'm on the bridge
the ship's bridge
steering shipload
of your people. There they are
on the deck looking up
scarcely knowing
of the icebergs
hidden reefs
wrecks of long gone ships
that I'm avoiding.
Keep me glued
to chart
that you've provided
to Holy Spirit's course
sensing dangers
most of all
the danger that I'll think
beyond the steering
I provide
power to make the ship move
on its appointed course.
Bring us all
to safe harbor
by twelve o'clock.

(From Psalms of My Life, by Joseph Bayly. p. 42)
