As the northern winds bring storms to your seas,
You’ll be tossed in the motion for brisk is the breeze.
As you man troubled waters, reach high for the call,
As you watch the waves rise, extend as they fall.

Though the course is unsteady, stay balanced and true.
Though the water is heady, let it flow over you.
For the waves move you forward towards your journey’s end,
Pushing onward and outward and around every bend.

From dusk into twilight, from evening to dawn,
Though darkness surrounds you, know there’s Light just beyond.
The force on the water makes the currents push through.
Move all that weighs on you further beyond you.

There is power in your waters… There is life in your seas…
There are riches beneath you… You hold the keys.
Your treasure is hidden for it dwells at the core.
You must dive deep to seize it from your ocean’s floor.

Vast is your reach and thus far you shall go.
For the Ocean above meets your ocean below.
