Hymn for Missionaries While at Sea: (By the Late Rev. Charles Wesley, A.M.)
Exploration, Piety, Wonder, Providence
Addresses God: 'For thee we leave our native shore, / [...] In other worlds thy works explore, / And see thy wonders in the deep'. Responding to the might of the ocean, considers that 'Faith only' discerns the divine presence. The poet relies on knowledge of Christ for providential care.
