Fearless of failing, sailing forth I go
In search of answers for the world to know
Our fate in the hereafter, when we die
More riddling than the Sphinx could ever try.
My ship is sound and worthy of the sea
Set prow to seventh wave; eternity
Across the bar and Pilot we would meet
Returning safe to spread the gospel fleet.
One hundred thousand crossword puzzles past
My mother worked, but strap me to the mast
My vessel verse is suited better for
The news rebroadcast from the farther shore.
And all will see and live in Paradise
Regained, abolishing the throw of dice.
