Some one has emailed me looking for the rest of these words. I confess to never having heard the song. Anybody recognize it?

Here is what she sent me:

Out of the harbor and into the sea
The Dawntreader moved soundlessly
Farther and farther from her port she sailed
With the wind blowing up a mighty gale

(and I forget the next verse)

and the wind was fierce
The rain crashed down like mighty spears
The ship was tossed, and all thought death was near
And the God's wrath had struck them here.

Chorus
    Steady as she goes boys,
    Steady her true,
    The Dawntreader will see you through.

The sails were tattered and the ship was worn
Then just as night was heading to dawn
Land was sighted off the starboard bow
And the captain said, "Bring her about."

    Chorus:

PRAYER ON THE DAWN TREADER
Jeff Kepple
      
Father of light, come to the dark
Cast out the fear, rise in my heart
Open my eyes, open my ears
' Til I am sure You're present here
Calming the raging sea
Reaching Your hand for me
Through tempest nights Your love is true
Help me believe my refuge is You
I will be found safe in Your arms
Waking to view the breaking dawn
Sailing the shining sea
Moved by the breath of Thee
Open my eyes, open my ears
' Til I observe Your glory here

With all my heart, with all my mind,
with all my strength, I love You
With all my life, with all my breath,
with all my words
I worship You Lord
Every sin I now confess
and You will make me clean
Holy wind of lion's breath,
lifting me into Your peace
I worship Thee

I made a Pacific crossing under sail from Hawaii to Califonia on a 48' cutter called the Dawntreader in the summer of 81. She was out of Port Townsend, Washington. Doubt if this song is related though, it was an uneventful sail, meaning very pleasant, no storm or sinking issues only 12 days in a row of being becalmed. Happy hour becalmed was very musical as 4 out of the 6 of us were singers/musicians.

The sails were tattered
And the wind was fierce
The rain came down like mightly spears
The ship was tossed, and all thought death was near
And that God's wrath had struck them here...

This is a complete verse that is missing from the partial one above.
I too have searched for the full lyrics without success! Learned the song originally at Mystic Seaport, CT
