In a Gale
By Cecily Fryer
IF he I love were on the sea,
My God, how I would pray to Thee!
And now I know that I should pray,
  With urgent tears, to Thee on high,
That Thou would’st call Thy storm away        5
  Lest other women’s loved ones die;
And on my knees should supplicate
  With all the strength that in me lies:
(For other women watch and wait
  With anguish written in their eyes.)        10
Lord, show them pity evermore!
  But I can neither weep nor pray,
For oh, my dear is safe ashore,
  And I go singing all the day.
