The Sails


Sea Sailboat Painting - Paul Chong

“And so it shall be when all of this thing have come upon you.

In your walking, in your waking,

in your moving and when you set sail,

Blessed shall you be when you come in,

and blessed shall you be when you go out.

May you live happily in the promise land,

And may you be fruitful in the produce of your hand.

When your heart is in the delight of the Lord,

And none of your steps will ever slide.


As water reflects the face,

So one’s life reflects the heart.

Blessed is a cheerful heart, for it is good medicine.

And may it bless a thousand more.

Wherever you go, let there be good tidings.

Let those along your journey; be pleased by your songs.

May your enlightenment, flows like rivers of living water.

Wherever it travels, bringing hope to the weary.


When tide comes in, and when tide goes out,

For from season to season, may your faith be greatly enlarged.

May your learning ever increasing,

and your understanding of a wise counsel.”
