Blue Boat Home (Peter Mayer)

Though below me, I feel no motion
Standing on these mountains and plains
Far away from the rolling ocean
Still my dry land heart can say
I’ve been sailing all my life now
Never harbor or port have I known
The wide universe is the ocean I travel and the earth is my blue boat home

Sun, my sail, and moon, my rudder as I ply the starry sea
Leaning over the edge in wonder Casting questions into the deep
Drifting here with my ship’s companions
All we kindred pilgrim souls
Making our way by the lights of the heavens in our beautiful blue boat home (repeat)

I give thanks to the waves upholding me
Hail the great winds urging me on
Greet the infinite sea before me
Sing the sky my sailor’s song
I was born upon the fathoms
Never harbor or port have I known
The wide universe is the ocean I travel and the earth is my blue boat home
