Bon Voyage

                         Shipwrecks! Ye Sailors! take courage!
                            The bounty is beyond the reef!
                           Oh fortunate ones, seek destiny!
                              The journey is in your belief!

                           Turn the wheel gently, not lonely,
                          And share with the Captain of souls.
                            Bring me the gold and the booty,
                            And be at peace with your goals.

                       Your sails, are they tossed to the wind?
                          Your sturn, does it steady the bow?
                         Shipwrecks! Ye Sailors! take courage!
                             The time of your destiny is now!
