A Sailor’s Prayer Dear Lord, I am just a sailor A protector of our land. A servant called to battle When my country takes a stand. I pray for strength and courage and a heart that will forgive, For peace and understanding In a world for all to live. My family’s prayers are with me, No matter where I roam. Please listen when I am lonely And return me safely home.
